Dear support team
I use multiple disks (some network and some local some external USB drives) to save all my pictures (around 300 Gb).
In windows 7 I had no problem creating links from "my pictures" to the other locations where my data is stored.
In windows 10 (home) - I can create a link, but I get access to folders only, cannot open any folder that actually contains files.
C:\WINDOWS\system32>mklink /d D:\Users\XXX\Pictures\2013 c:\Users\XXX\images\2013
symbolic link created for D:\Users\XXX\Pictures\2013 <<===>> c:\Users\XXX\images\2013
When I try to access a picture (or any file) via the link created above I get the following error:
Location is not available
D:\Users\XXX\Pictures\2013\2013-01-04 is not accessible.
The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive.
a. what is the meaning of this error - is windows actually copying files when accessing via symbolic link?
b. what is different between windows 7 and windows 10 , specifically was this option blocked? if so why?
c. finally - what is the solution for this problem?
