2003 sbs & junction points

By jsparksaa ·
I just started using junction points via Disk Management, Change Drive Letter and Path.

Maxtor 500 GB USB drive

partition drive Junction Point

Logical 1 J:
Primary 1 E: J:\backup\d1
Primary 2 F: J:\backup\d2
Primary 3 G: J:\backup\d3

As demonstrated, I have given each partition a drive letter and I have mounted the partition onto an empty NTFS directory.

I right-click into a drive via the junction-point and create a new folder, and the folder is created.

Now I am seeing a strange problem. If I immediately try to delete the folder, I get a message "Access Denied."

I can, however, delete the folder via the drive letter. Curiously, I am able to delete the folder from the Junction Point from CMD prompt using RMDIR.

I can create and delete (text) files, so the problem seems to be deleting folders only.

I verified permissions, I am an admin, and the folder is new, so no one should be using it. I tested by creating a number of folders and trying to delete each folder and each showed Access Denied.

Any hints are appreciated.

Thanks, Jim
