    windows shortcut unaccessible in linux

    I'm not sure I'm in the right place for this, but I have a shortcut on an external hard drive of a computer I use as a server that I access via a wifi network. When I tried to use it, it told me that it could not access the .ink file on the server (I run windows on the server). And for reasons that I'm still trying to figure out now, I cannot access the file directly because it's on another external hard drive on the same machine that I don't know how to get into right now. So I was wondering if anyone knew where I could download a program or do a bit of programming that would allow me to use a .ink file.

    Thank You

    The symbolic links of Linux and Windows differ.

    I would try more to connect directly to the target drive, where the files you want are stored.

    But maybe it would be possible to run a file manager from the windows world via wine to use the windows link.

    I figured out how to get to the target hard drive after all. Thanks for your help!
