Subject [Bug 47630] NTFS Reparse Points are treated as n*x APR_LNK, only correct for junction/dir link
Date Tue, 24 May 2016 11:33:52 GMT

--- Comment #15 from Michael Schlenker <msc@contact.de> ---
Agreed. The scope of this ticket went a bit toward the link/junction part, as
that was the most common type encountered in the wild at the time of the ticket

The reparse point tag list at MSDN lists quite a few tags, which might be
encountered, although most will be rare in smaller infrastructures.


Slightly explaining the values:

The docs are not really that informative sadly, but the tags seem to be like
this, even if probably not complete:

IO_REPARSE_TAG_CSV   - Cluster Shared Volumes (transparently mounting a SMB
Share to share storage between cluster nodes), kind of a mount point

IO_REPARSE_TAG_DEDUP - Data Deduplication in Windows Server 2012

IO_REPARSE_TAG_DFS   - Seem to be related to Distributed-Filesystem Replication

IO_REPARSE_TAG_HSM   - Hierarchical Storage Manager redirections

IO_REPARSE_TAG_MOUNT_POINT - Seems the one used for junctions and filesystem
mount points

IO_REPARSE_TAG_NFS - Probably the NFS Filesystem filter driver

IO_REPARSE_TAG_SIS - Single Instance Storage, seems to be similar to the Dedup

IO_REPARSE_TAG_WIM - seems to be mountpoints for WIM images (e.g. similar to a
mounted disc image), see

All the dedup and installable filesystem style stuff should probably be treated
as normal files/directories. The SYMLINK and MOUNT_POINT things are probably
correctly treated as APR_LINK.
