Re: Cannot access volumes mounted with 'mklink /d' which point to a volume UUID

This type of directory symlink to a GUID volume path isn't supported

As I mentioned, symlinks don't support volume destinations
under windows, but Junctions should be used instead.  They
half-way work under Cygwin (junctions to volumes look like
mounted file systems look under linux, but junctions to
pathnames get converted by cygwin to symlinks -- losing
information when such junctions are restored.

Corinna -- could you _please_ re-look at supporting both
types of junctions as mount points?  Then Cygwin could have
"mount-parity" with linux! ;-)
