Vista - how to view symbolic links?
Posted on 2008-10-15
I just started using Dropbox to sync my Roboform passwords across 3 computers (it's such a timesaver so far!)
I have 2 XP boxes and one Vista Ultimate 64-bit
The 2 XP boxes sync'd no problem. The Vista box took a long time to sync (do know how long but when I checked this morning it finally had the new files)
I contacted Dropbox support and they said "you seem to have a junction point at My Dropbox\nat\ that is tripping dropbox up. can you delete the junction and restart dropbox?" (very fast response from them by the way, and this off their forums)
How do I view symbolic links? I tried dir /A but that didn't work. dir /AL gives me an error so I guess L is not a switch.
I haven't used but I've heard of the command mlink to create/delete symbolic links. Can this be used to view links as well?
Or how can I view and then delete an unwanted sym link in Vista?
Also, since the MASTER directory that this was sync'd from was on XP, is there a way to see in XP if I have a symlink (junction) in my original directory?
