Here is a proof-of-concept of the problem I want to describe.
- Create a
my folderand inside it, create a symlink of ANY other outside file (i.e.
- Move the
original.txtto other location, or even just rename. (its symlink still stays in
- Try to copy/move the
Windows copy window will hang forever:
However, if you delete (or rename) the symlink itself, the copy will continue well.
It is very annoying as I have thousands of files (CMS, etc..) symlinked across different projects, and I am searching how to FORCE WINDOWS , NOT TO STUCK on those cases.
