Is Dism supposed to do this?

I mounted a W10 image and when I checked the folder with all the data, I noticed that f:\mount\Users\All Users\ folder contains data from the OS running on the PC. How is this even possible? What's going on?

edit: I am doing this from within Windows 7, but that shouldn't matter.

All Users is not a folder, it is a symbolic link.

I mounted a wim and tried to follow the All Users link, but it tells me "The symbolic link cannot be followed because its type is disabled." Actually, I have my mount folder as a network share. It does not work this way.

From the actual system, it does allow the symbolic link to be followed, and will then show the contents of c:\users\all users inside of mount\users\all users.

It is Windows that is doing this.

Thanks. That makes some sense.

It's not doing it with Windows 7 image though, and it's a symbolic link too. That confuses the hell out of me.
