in reply to Re^2: unable to make manifest with symlinks
in thread unable to make manifest with symlinks
Interesting, yet they are either rarely used or not really what they look like. I am not surprised that NTFS has added such features, but I am fairly sure that there are limitations.
If I recall correctly, junctions can only refer to directories and are more like Linux's bind mounts than POSIX symlinks or hardlinks, including a requirement for special privilege to create them.
If XP added true symlinks, what are the commands for using them? I doubt that ln -s works...
