I am having an issue creating a symbolic link on Windows 7 Ultimate. I want to map a folder from a mapped network drive into My Documents.
mklink /D "C:\Users\Vegard\Documents\Virtual Machines" "Z:\Virtual Machines" returns
You do not have sufficient privilege to perform this operation..
Z:\Virtual Machines is set to be available offline, but I am online when I am trying this.
This is what I've tried (as suggested here):
Using Local Security Policy to add my user to Local Polices\User Rights Assignments\Create symbolic links, and rebooting. No luck.
Running cmd.exe as an Administrator, but then I cannot see the mapped network drive at all. I can however create symbolic links on the drive.
symlinkevaluation, to set
R2L:1(even though it seem to me I want
L2R, which is already enabled).
Using full UNC path of the shared folder does not work either (
The syntax of the command is incorrect.when run as an administrator,
You do not have sufficient privilege to perform this operation.when run as a normal user).
fsutil behavior query symlinkevaluation:
C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query symlinkevaluation Local to local symbolic links are enabled. Local to remote symbolic links are enabled. Remote to local symbolic links are enabled. Remote to remote symbolic links are disabled.
