On my server PC I have a folder:
F:\DATA\BACKUPS set up as a hidden share
I have a network folder called

\\SERVER\FILES\BACKUPS\ is not accessible
I check the properties of the symlink and it says target:
So I'm not sure why it's looking for
\\SERVER\FILES\BACKUPS instead of just
I was able to just create a shortcut link to it and it works fine. But it seems a symlink should work too.
