I'm not sure what you want. What is "everything else" in this context?
First off though you might like this option:
-k Do not overwrite existing files.
then, pick your poison:
-H Follow only command-line symbolic links while performing a physi-
cal file system traversal.
-L Follow all symbolic links to perform a logical file system
-P Do not follow symbolic links, perform a physical file system
traversal. This is the default mode.
