Only delete the myappPortable symlink when uninstall

Hello,
I have myAppPortable symlink (directory symlink) placed under PortableApps folder.
When I choose uninstal myApp from PortableApps platform, it deletes the contents (files and folders) inside the symlink directory.

Not sure if it is a bug.
But please when uninstall myApp, only delete the symlink, not the contents. Or provide option to only delete symlink.
Should also take care of other symlinks if any present in myAppPortable.

Full Delete

Uninstalling within the platform is designed to fully wipe the folder that is shown on the screen. Even with a symlink, it will delete everything.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Please support an option to

Please support an option to only delete symlinks if there is any symlink in the AppFolder.
I agree that It should wipe the AppFolder completly when uninstall, but the symlink in some senses are not only inside the AppFolder.
