Vegetables | |--- Carrot |--- Tomato Fruits | |--- Banana

Vegetables folder are confused, I created a link to
However, people who sync both
Fruits folders with OneDrive for Business now see an
.aspx file in
Vegetables. When they click on it, various things can happen (based on what program is associated with

Fruits folder they end up in:
.lnk file in the
Vegetables folder would point to
c:Usersmy_userorgteamsitefruitstomato and when it’s synced to
.lnk file points to a non-existent location.
This tool creates relative ‘.lnk’ files.
So now it points to
This relative shortcut unfortunately does not work for other users for an unknown reason.
