I guess MVV is referring to:

Code: Select all

16=Symbolic links (if necessary) 
and not to:

Code: Select all

22=Relative symbolic links (if possible)

You are right, you can also guess that I was focused on new strings. My bad, I have written about checking old strings lately.

However, we should NOT guess at all, I think. It is MVV who should provide exact info.

Well, I've really written about "Symbolic links (if necessary)" string in my previous post, as petermad said. This option creates hardlinks and junctions when possible and symbolic links otherwise (e.g. hardlink can't be made on a different volume), and there are no cases where junctions/hardlinks are possible but symbolic links don't, therefore it has "(if necessary)".

But there are cases when relative symbolic links are not possible but absolute ones do, so "Relative symbolic links (if possible)" option has "(if possible)".

Thank you, Happy New Year! :)

And thanks for the translation. However I have a question: you have changed "if necessary" to "if possible" for symlink creation, and now your option has a bit different meaning. It is always possible to create a symlink (in case of NTFS target of course), but it is not always possible to create a hardlink, so "if possible" looks incorrect here. Please correct it.
Corrected, url is the same as above.
