I have a shared folder, let's call it
'Everyone' has read permission to the share and file system.
From a command line, with pwd at
mklink /D slF1 e:\folder1
The permissions for both folders(folder1,folder2) are identical (Everyone has read access for network access and file system access)
When I try to open
I get an accessibility error.
Can this even work? If so what's the trick?
EDIT: If I share the symlink slF1 directly, it works -- that is, I can share \thismachine\slF1\
EDIT II: I tried what sysadmin1138 suggested. I just couldn't get it to work unless I ran:
fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation L2L:1 R2R:1 L2R:1 R2L:1
and then, I had to use junctions for directories and hardlinks for files. This is a bit weird. Am I missing anything? I'll accept your answer tomorrow morning. Thanks!
