Symlinks on QNAP and Windows (delete this ig?)

Recommended Posts

Okay, apparently they're NOT supported on windows... rip. guess I'll have to find something else...


Hi, I was trying to sync my files on Windows 10 to my QNAP NAS running QTS.

My folders contain soft link symlinks and I understood that Resilio supported symlinks...

however when I looked at my files on my NAS, they were not symlinks. :( They were just..... duplicate files lol. as a result this created files taking up a lot of extra space, and I can not effectively use it as backup. Help?
(I confirmed this via mounting my shared folders)

Btw, the symlinks on Windows were created using Linkshell Extension, but as far as I understand these are just the same as the ones made with cmd.
