Windows 7: Are Reparse Points and MountVol broken when seen by WinPE or Linux ?

27 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit SP1 x64
Are Reparse Points and MountVol broken when seen by WinPE or Linux ?

MountVol shows :-
When I look at E:\Images I see the contents of
I:\ = \\?\Volume{7374db70-7389-11e2-8a06-001e8c888f33}\

If I use a Bootable WinPE or Linux CD the drive letters will be different or non-existent.
What about the GUID {7374db70-7389-11e2-8a06-001e8c888f33}
Is that fixed in the partition table or is that another figment of Windows imagination ?

Do reparse points maintain their links between separate partitions and separate HDD's :-
regardless of whether created by MounVol or MKDIR or tools such as
Junction Link Magic
and regardless of any changes in drive letters as seen by different operating systems ?
