Using FileCreateNTFSLink to link directories

Recommended Posts

Ghastly_MIB

Hey,

Does anybody know how I can create a hardlink from an directory to an other?

I know that the destination directory must be empty.

But creating the link always fails.

I tried to link a file, and that works...

Simple test script:

#NoTrayIcon
DirCreate("C:\system directory")
MsgBox(0, "", FileCreateNTFSLink("C:\windows\system32", "C:\system directory"))

Thanks,

Mathijs

Try this code without creating the folder/directory.

If Not FileExists('C:\system directory\') Then
    MsgBox(0, "", FileCreateNTFSLink("C:\windows\system32\", "C:\system directory\"))
EndIf

You now know that the directory should not exist before creating the junction point now.
