git bash symbolic links on windows

Solved! Go to Solution.

I did an ln -s file1 file2  in gitbash.

when I did an ls -l file2 it did not have an "s" in it.

When I did "stat" on each file, there were different inodes.

 

I was wondering whether "ln -s" (symbolic links) do not work on git bash in Windows 7?
