I need to copy a folder and all of its subfolders but I don't want any of the symlinks or their contents to come with it.
Can this be done simply?
Or - obviously - can I easily disconnect and remove all symlinks from a folder hierarchy.

The command-line utility robocopy.exe (included in Win7) has the option /sl which
"Copies the symbolic link instead of the target.".
That result should be very close to what you have asked for.
