Issue with Symbolic Links in RTC


vinay kumar bondugula (5411841) | asked Oct 24 '17, 9:36 a.m.

We are facing issues while copying files from one directory to another which has symbolic links created by RTC. It  always hangs while copying(Windows Servr 2012, Windows 10, Windows 7). The issue happens even with links is within a component. Please let me know how can we fix the issue.


Thanks,
Vinay

 What is the exact copy command that you are executing?

 We are using general copy paste function on windows.

RTC just creates standard Windows symbolic links, so unless you are using RTC Windows Shell Integration, the copy/paste does not involve any RTC code, so this would be a Windows question rather than an RTC question.   One experiment you can do to verify is to create a symbolic link by hand, and trying the copy/paste of a directory containing that symbolic link.  A quick google search shows other reports of this issue in Windows:
