Follow symbolic links
Deactivate the Follow symbolic links checkbbox if Synchredible does not synchronize the linked objects for the iconic links. If the check box is activated, trace the links for Synchredible and synchronize the targeted object.
My guess is that these apply to shortcut files (I'm running XP Pro), so that if I'm synching a shorcut, it will also synch the file the shortcut is pointing to. Am I close? Even if I'm correct, could you explain in a bit more detail what happens when you enable this option?
