If I mess up my computer I will fix it or format it and start over.
I get the feeling noone gets my point. I know they are junction points, but
why show them if you can't access them?
I want to know what is on my computer. On my computer they look like an
ordinary folder. If you look back at the first response, won't you
immediately feel put down and defensive? My default user folder is not
empty. I could not access it until I changed the security options. So are
the rest empty?

I know for sure that something is empty... I think it's your head.

There it is. You are asking for help so you can mess up your computer,
which means it is likely you will be back asking for more help fixing
something and you won't understand how you messed it up and you will
provide insufficient information. You will waste a lot of time; yours and
those of others trying to help.

I think most or all people that help others here will prefer that you
don't ask for help here when in the future you mess up your computer in a
manner you don't understand and you are doing something Windows is trying
to protect you from messing up.

If I choose to access something and mess up my computer, why can't I?
