"You don't currently have permission to access this folder" on symbolic link

You will face this error when creating a symbolic link (using mklink for example) to a network path.

I encountered this when trying to workaround Visual Studio's insistance that projects not be opened from network drives.

Symbolic links can only be created on local drives.
