You are running Client for NFS (Network File System) in a Windows-based operating system. However, you cannot access a symbolic link (symlink).

This problem occurs if the following condition is true:

The path length of the symbolic link + the length of the target of the symbolic link + the integer constant “c” is greater than the length of the maximum path length (The maximum path length is 260 characters).

If you run the ls command in a shell prompt in Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) when this issue occurs, you receive the following error message:

Data buffer too small to store result

Similarly, if you run the dir command at a command prompt, the destination file information is not displayed as expected.
