Background: We have an application which stores its files on a network share (mapped as "Z:" drive for all users). This application contains hundreds of links to Z:/A/B/X, Z:/A/C/Y, Z:/A/D/W, (...) files.

Issue: For some reasons we have to migrate our network share to a different network locations. So in the above example the folders B, C and D will be stored in different network shares. We tried to create shotcuts (e.g. a shortcut 'B' pointing to the new location of B) so that we do not have to mofify all the links within the application - but it does not seem to work.

Question: I have been told the command "mklink" may be the solution. Do you think this is the way forward for us? Symbolic link, hard link or directory junction?
