How do I figure out if a link is a symbolic link, a hard link, or a directory junction in Windows?

How do I figure out if a link is a symbolic link, a hard link, or a directory junction in Windows?

If I've created a directory link via mklink, how can I figure out if it was a symbolic link, a directory junction, or a hard link (ie whether I used /d, /j, or /h)?

"At the command line you can type

dir /a

You should see something similar to:

02/08/2010 11:40 PM <SYMLINKD> d1 [..\targetdir1]
02/08/2010 11:41 PM <JUNCTION> d2 [..\targetdir2]

This shows a directory symlink (/D) and a directory junction (/J)"
