I can reproduce it now, but it has nothing to do with links/junctions.

The problem is that the shown file is outside of the project folder
hierarchy. Visual D tries to recreate the projects folder structure, so
it copies




which is the same file!

A simple workaround is to use a junction in the project folder to access

I guess Visual D should not copy files outside of the project folder,
but they are also not subject to dustmite in that case.

Alternatively, the dustmite directory could be created in a common
parent folder for all files, but that doesn't work for files distributed
over different drives.
