  1. 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

    Code:

    MKLINK not recognized

    I want to use MKLINK (in Powershell) to sync a folder to OneDrive.

    There are many articles about using this is Windows 10.

    But I get this message from Powershell:

    mklink : The term 'mklink' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.

    Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

    How do I get access to MKLINK?

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.

    MKLINK not recognized

    Mklink is not a standalone executabe, it's built-in to the Command Prompt (cmd.exe). It can't run directly from PowerShell.

    So easiest thing to do is open an actual Command Prompt, type 'mklink' and you'll get the built-in help.
