Windows Junction Setup?
So I'm sure i read somewhere about creating junctions (kinda like sym links, i'm more use to linux :P).

Anyone able to better describe how to do this? Part of what slows me down, and makes commits more hesitant is I keep all my git on a networked drive, and edit those files then copy what I edited to my wow folder for testing. So much easier if I can edit live and not worry about copying constantly.

If you are on Vista+ you can use:

mklink /D "C:\GAMES\WoW\Interface\AddOns\Carbonite" X:\DEV\Carbonite
P.S. You have to do this for each directory and need to map the network drive in order for this to work.

Under Windows 7 and later you need full administrator rights to create a link (including UAC context switch)
Normal Users cannot run mklink
