So when I restore a userprofile on a W2K8 server, in v8, it restores the junction points as empty folders. v7 even got stuck in a restore loop, recursively restoring the ...appdata/Application Data folder.
Microsoft themselves state that ' backup applications must be able to backup and restore junction points' (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb968829(v=vs.85).aspx
). WSB correctly restores junction points.
It is not a big day to day issue for us, but it it got us into some serious and unnecessary downtime when restoring some accidentally removed user profiles which made the c: drive run out of space.
Will this be fixed?
