  • Hi,

     

    I did a research and test on my test environment.

     

    Before moving on, I would like to let you know Windows Vista includes the following file linking methods:

     

    Mount Points

    Junctions

    Hard Links

    Distributed File System

    Drive Letter Mapping

    Symbolic links

     

    I did every method on my environment, but I could not exactly reproduce the symptoms which occurs on your computer. So the problem should not be a Windows Vista problem. I suspect the issue is caused by a third party software.

     

    Given the situation, please confirm the following points. Thank you for your cooperation.

     

    Could you please let me know what software you installed recently?

    Could you delete the folder in Safe Mode?

     

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for posting.

     

    Before moving on, could you please confirm if you can access the folder?

     

    If so, could you please collect a screenshot for the folder?

     

    How to capture a screenshot

    ======================

    1. Press the Print Screen key (PrtScn) on your keyboard when the error appears.

    2. Click "Start", type "mspaint" in the Search Bar and Press Enter.

    3. In the Paint program, click the "Edit", click "Paste". Then click the "File" menu, and select "Save".

    4. The "Save As" dialogue box will appear. Type a file name in the "File name:" box, for example: "screenshot".

    5. Make sure "JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG;*.JPE;*.JFIF)" is selected in the "Save as type" box, click "Desktop" on the left pane and then click "Save".

    6. Upload the screenshot to a photo sharing site, such as www.flickr.com.

    7. Copy the link of screenshot and post it on the forum.

     

    After I get the information, I will take a further research on it.

     

    Thanks.
