Using Cobian Backup, I backed up my home folder and neglected to deselect "Include Junctions." I now have a recursive Application Data folder filling my entire backup drive: B:\Desktop\TIMOTH~1\AppData\Local\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\Application Data...

Is there an easy way to remedy this, or do I need to bite the bullet and format the drive?


I had to format the drive. The junctions were not removed by deleting the attached folders. One possible other option: How can I delete a symbolic link?
