I have setup a DFS root called 'DFS'. It is located c:\dfs

I then created a link under the DFS root called 'SoftwareInstall'. It is located c:\softwareinstall

Both folders are shared with appropriate permissions.

The problem is that I have lost the junction point for 'SoftwareInstall'. I don't know how it happened but I want to recreate the junction point in the DFS folder in c:\DFS without having to delete the SoftwareInstall link in DFS Management console and recreate it. The reason for this is there was a massive amount of servers I had to setup the replication to and configure a custom replication set and I don't want to have to repeat this process.

How do I simply create a new junction point in c:\dfs pointing to c:\softwareinstall ?
