Works now, I had the wrong 8.3 path.
I was wandering through the archives and saw the thread on symbolic

They're called "Junctions" under NTFS. There is a command line utility
called linkd to manipulate junctions. It comes with the Win2K Resource
Here are some links to information about junctions and reparse points:
I also discovered that there is some sample code to create junctions on
the sysinternals web site:
Junctions show up like this using cmd.exe's dir command:
Directory of c:\temp\xxx
07/27/2004 09:27 PM <DIR> .
07/27/2004 09:27 PM <DIR> ..
07/27/2004 09:27 PM <JUNCTION> LinkDir
07/27/2004 09:27 PM <DIR> RealDir
I've been using linkd for a few years, and it works quite well. It
allows crossing drive letters as well.
