    Even at Microsoft there is a constant confusion and interchangeable use of several terms:

    Reparse Points (You can list those with DIR /AL) According to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/205524 “reparse points are the entities that underlie junction points”.

    – Junction Points

    – Links

    Navigate to C:Users and type command DIR /AL /S.

    As you can see this command will list entries of two types:

    – <SYMLINKD>

    – <JUNCTION>

    If you want to copy an instance, remember to skip all these types of entries with RoboCopy /XJD switch.
