I hoped I might be able to back up directory structure containing symlinks and directory junctions with 7-Zip as changelog mentioned NTFS alternate streams support with WIM archives.

  1. I created archive using -sns -sni
  2. After extraction, symlinks and directory junctions were recreated as empty directories.
  3. Attempt to mount archive (dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:f:\Users.wim /index:1 /MountDir:e:\img) resulted with

    Error: 4392
    The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid.

I used 7-Zip 9.30 alpha
