Symbolic links to remote locations …

Recently after migrating to Windows 7 on my work machine, I ran into a little issue. I created symbolic links pointing to a network share. Now this is all fine and dandy, but symbolic links can only be created by administrators with mklink and the resulting link seems to be limited to the administrative user even though the target location isn’t. After a bit of tinkering I found how to fix it:

icacls.exe D:\symlink /grant Oliver:(OI)(CI)(F) /l /c /q
