Creating Junction Points
Refer to the documentation of the OS you are using to for any rules that may apply when creating or deleting junction points.
When a user is created in Syncrify server, you have to specify a path where files are stored. This is called the repository path. Consider the following scenario where you create a user with the following values:
John Doe, the administrator of the Syncrify Server wants to change the backup location of the top level folder
using junction points
. Assume the profile name is ProfileOne
By default, the files will be stored in the following folder on the target machine (where Syncrify server is running)
Often you need to change the folder path on the server - meaning the file location should reference another location.
Login as administrator to the machine running Syncrify server.Open command line and then change directories to the repository pathTo make a junction point type
In this example we will change have the wwwroot
folder on the server point to C:\InetPub\wwwroot
- We are logged in as administrator to the machine running Syncrify server.
- Open command line and then we changed directories to the C:\Users\John Doe\Backups\email@example.com\ProfileOne
- To make the junction point we typed
- mklink /J wwwroot C:\InetPub\wwwroot
