I just sent you an email containing a video capture.

For context, I frequently use junction points and subst commands through registry settings. This may be related to the issue. I rely on these methods due to filename length limitations with Teams sync and OneDrive Cloud in a corporate environment. Sometimes the combined length of the storage placeholder, directory name, subdirectory, and filename is too long to manage. In the past, removing the 256-character limit within Windows didn't resolve the issue and actually led to additional sync problems.

That said, KJohnson has also experienced the glitch. It's possible that he does not use subst or junction points.

1.Two F9's entries I use daily

::J Add junction point (Windows)
:: Free utility at https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

#ZTHome\Nirsoft\nircmd\nircmdc.exe elevate cmd /c mklink /J "%j2:%j3\%6" "%2:%3"


::D Delete junction point (Windows)
:: Free utility at https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

#ZTHome\Nirsoft\NirCmd\nircmdc.exe elevate cmd /c rmdir "%1"

2. Subst hack to create a U: from a directory which in turns has junction points

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\DOS Devices]
