    No, nothing to do with Adobe. Application Data is a Junction Point or Symbolic Link (not sure which) that points to AppData, so clicking on it just takes you round in circles. From what I just read, it's there for legacy apps that expect to see a Application Data directory. See here:

    detect junction point xp - Google Search

    My question was, and still is, is there any way to bypass or negate this when using the dir command from a Command Prompt?

    Apparently no way to bypass Junction Point problem

    Looks like I'll have to give up on using the dir command if I want to search the Users directory tree. I found this post by Raymond Chen which is pretty clear:

    Windows Confidential - Junction Dysfunction

    Darn shame MS crippled a very useful tool, at least in this one instance. I understand why they did it though.
