Apologies for the late reply. I checked the system, and noticed I did
not have such a link. Just to be sure: The goal is to have the files
that are being written in /etc/lvm/{archive,backup} on a non-lvm
partition, right? So I could restore them from a backup of the system as
well, if I need to? Or I could just edit /etc/lvm/lvm.conf and modify
the backup_dir and archive_dir to point to /boot/lvm/{backup,archive},

Thanks for the education!
