I need your help.
I used to have all my pictures stored on h:\CommonPictures. the H drive is on a machine that is attached to my local LAN. It is shared and hence accessible by me on other machines on my LAN and by my wife on her machine which is connected to our LAN.
Now I tried to use your mklink command. First I copied the CommonPictures folder to OneDrive. After a few minutes all the images were then on OneDrive.
I checked to make sure and to this very moment they remain there. I then deleted CommonPictures on H: so far everything is going as expected.
I then opened up a command prompt run as administrator.
I typed in mklink /d H:\ "C:\users\USERNAME\OneDrive\CommonPictures
I get an error message, "access is denied" .
I did look on the internet for help. I did see a great number of articles that suggested that mklink /d works only on local volumes. I am assuming that
OneDrive IS local just as H:\ is local (i am on the machine where H:\ and OneDrive is located).
I suspect that I am not understanding something. I know you are very busy, but if you just gave me a hint I would research the answer myself. At the moment i have no idea how to think.
