DirectoryInfoCreateJunction Method (String, Boolean)

[AlphaFS] Converts the DirectoryInfo instance into a directory junction instance (similar to CMD command: "MKLINK /J").


The directory must be empty and reside on a local volume.


MSDN: A junction (also called a soft link) differs from a hard link in that the storage objects it references are separate directories,

and a junction can link directories located on different local volumes on the same computer.

Otherwise, junctions operate identically to hard links. Junctions are implemented through reparse points.
