No, what I was mentioning here is what I have read as standard

"copy" is created as a hard link to the original file, for storage
efficiency, and then when one of the files is updated the hardlink is
broken and both files become physical.
Considering all the grinding noises my hard drive makes if I copy a
file, I wouldn't have said it works in that way.
