Reparse Points / DFS

Mar 26, 2014 at 3:12 PM
Are reparse points supported by AlphaFS? I have an application that allows me to toggle the AlphaFS on/off. When it is off, my application is able to properly handle reparse points and access files in a DFS. When it is on, I get error code 4390 (The file or directory is not a reparse point). Any suggestions on what could be going wrong?

Yes, AlphaFS supports reparse points.
Could you be more specific about the used AlphaFS-methods that give this error code?

When my application enumerates through folders, it maintains a list of reparse points to prevent getting into a loop. When I enumerate over a DFS folder, the AlphaFS DirectoryInfo attributes indicate the folder is a reparse point, but there is no target path. When I switch to using the .NET DirectoryInfo, the same DFS folder attributes do not indicate it is a reparse point.
        var dirInfo = new DirectoryInfo(folder);
        return dirInfo.Attributes.HasFlag(FileAttributes.ReparsePoint);

Perhaps you can try again with the latest dev build.
A couple of builds ago, an issue with Attributes has been fixed, perhaps it also fixes your issue.

I haven’t tried the newer builds yet. Thanks for following up though.
