Symbolic Links

Settings are available in the Technician version only!

Symbolic links (of symlinks for short) are object that contains references to other files or folders directory in the form of absolute or relative paths and that affect pathname resolution. For example, if a symlink C:\ProgramData\Documents points to D:\Recovered Files\Root\Users\Public\Documents, entering it will result in entering D:\Recovered Files\Root\Users\Public\Documents.
