Problem with links

I decide to move a folder to another hard drive and then MKLINK a "connection" back to its original position. Eg, moved the Music folder from C:\Users\Me\Music to E:\Music, delete the Music folder from C, and mklink /j C:\Users\Me\Music E:\Music

That worked.

Now if I want to break that link, what do I do? If the answer is RD, will that just break the link or will it remove the directory and its contents?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Too much to wade through to get to the actual answer/explanation.

"MKLINK cannot use to delete symbolic link. To remove a symbolic link, simply delete them as if you’re removing a normal file. Just make sure you don’t delete the original file."

"To delete a symbolic link to a file or directory, the following command line syntax can be used (in each case, "linkname" specifies the name of the symbolic link to be deleted):
For links to files:
• del linkName
For links to directories:
• rmdir linkName "
