I created a symbolic link with Junction or Junction Helper and need to delete it


To manage symbolic links on your Windows PC, you need to download the actual Junction tool from Microsoft. Our Junction Helper tool uses Junction, but you'll need the actual Junction download to do this. Junction is available here and must be run from the Windows command prompt. 

  1. Save the Junction.zip to your Desktop.
  2. Unzip the junction.exe file to your Desktop.
  3. Open the command window by clicking the Start button > Programs > Accessories, right-clicking Command Prompt, and choosing Run As Administrator.
  4. In the command prompt window, enter cd Desktop and press Enter. You may now run the commands mentioned below and on the Junction download page.

You can check for an existing link by running this command:

junction -s c:\

You can delete an old link by using this command:

junction -d "C:\ProgramData\MediaMall"
