I realize this question is old, but here is a proper answer for your question. I have only done this on Windows 7 so I have no idea if this will work on any of the other Windows versions.

Open a shell by writing cmd in the run field of the start button and enter the following command mklink /d C:\path\to\your\directory \\Server\path\to\share.

You can also do this from powershell but powershell must be started with administrator rights and the command above has to be preceded by cmd /c

  • yes it's old, but your solution is the correct one. (my bad I didn't put an answer long ago, when I have found it by myself)
