I am using Windows XP and using cygwin.
For all these years... I was successful to create symbolic links like
this... in the directory /cgydrive/c/x (which is the same as /c/x in
$ ln -s '\\bfs\h$' csprod_h
And, I have a few of those old symlinks... for which I can do like
cd /c/x/csprod_h and I will be taken there.. It still works for the
But, when I create some new symlinks using the above method... for
$ ln -s '\\bfs2\c$' cstest_c
All, I get is a..
cstest_c and it is a "system file"... and I can't cd to that
when i open the file in text editor, this is what i have for example:
!<symlink>ÿþ\.... with some control characters..
I can't cd to that directory in cygwin nor can i double click on it in
explorer to go to the target directory.
Why the sudden change of behaviour in my system and how can I fix this
I want symlinks create like above to work.
