Hello Jerome,

Sorry about that.

To undo Option Two, you would just delete both the "link" (pictures folder) and "target" (network folder)

The symbolic link works, it doesn't work, how does that sound

I have a shared drive I want to access in a Library I followed the steps exactly as followed and the symbolic link is created, except when I try to access the shared network drive it doesn't work ?

You can't add folders to a symbolic link library, without creating the symbolic link again

I am stuck in the mklink step. I keep getting "The system cannot find the path specified". I have used the full network name for the target, the drive letter I have mapped to it, even tried an existing folder on the C: drive just to see if it works.
