comment Windows 7 NTFS Symbolic Link - Network Share Availability/Timeout
Will do, but this seems obviously a tricky one. Also questions with UNC path / timeout do not have answers: serverfault.com/questions/253690/…

Good question +1, did you find out how to adjust it (the timeout)? Exactly the same issue for me.

comment Why obfuscating a serial number of a device? What is the risk?
Good summary, 1. is a good hint. The report stolen / register idea also crossed my mind, but in reality I have my doubts. Since the people who report / register are known, they run a high risk. Once the situation is noticed and I proof I am the legitimate owner, they are in the trap. Compared to CC fraud, the profit compared to the risk seems pretty limited.

@Paul: This is what I am looking for, just done "for some reason", or really an important reason which I have not realized so far.

The car's plate is different. Because you can track back from the plate to the owner. But is the SN registered somewhere, it could be, but not necessarily is. And where would you trace that SN owner relationship? Regarding off topic: It is your good right to vote for close, If the majority thinks it is this way, I need to accept this.
