Vista System Links

    Vista seems to create some type of system link files for backwards compatibility.  For example there is a file called "Documents and Settings" that looks like a shortcut file (icon wise), but if you click on it you get an access denied error.

    The problem I have is that when I run software that synchs my user folder to another drive when it hits one of those special link files which it can't copy it blows up.

    How can I get around this?

    Thanks.

    WOW - there isn't a simple fix for this?
