Using Microsoft Windows symbolic links with Citrix ShareFile Sync to sync folders from multiple drives – JasonSamuel.com
The ShareFile Sync for Windows client allows you to change your Sync Location on your local system in Sync Preferences. In my case I had a very large hard drive installed on my workstation as the E: drive so I chose to put my ShareFile root folder there like this:
The problem was I had a bunch of very large RAW images stored on another high capacity drive installed on this workstation.
