MKLINK not working

    MKLINK not working

    winver 18363.628

    Never had any problems with this before. Re-checked the MKLINK tutorial, trying cmd and PowerShell. Added the quotes to target and link too, but same result

    So here are the commands in cmd with error messages. Note that I tried the hard link option too (/h). The link is being made to a target on the same logical drive (volume). Drive D: is FAT32 and is a partition on an SSD physical disk with the C: logical drive (NTFS-formatted, of course). I see no indication that symlinks (soft or hard) are not supported on FAT32 drives

    D:\service.web.mySite> mklink /d  "style" "D:\service.web.Root\style"
    The device does not support symbolic links.
    D:\service.web.mySite> mklink /d /h "style" "D:\service.web.Root\style"
    Local NTFS volumes are required to complete the operation.

    Links (Symbolic or Hard) require NTFS, don't work on FAT32.
