In the answer to the question Agent Ransack statistics it was mentioned that Agent Ransack won't search 'hidden junction points'.

A junction point is a special type of reparse point. Reparse points are redirections in the Windows file system. There are 3 types of reparse points:

1.Symbolic links - can be thought of as a shortcut to a file or folder elsewhere in the file system

2.Junction points - can only point to a folder

3.Mount points - is a folder on a disk that points to an entire disk volume

Can you please be a bit more specific. Which one does AR not scan?

Agent Ransack will not search folders which have the attributes FILE_ATTRIBUTE_REPARSE_POINT and HIDDEN and SYSTEM. All other folders (whether reparse points or not) will be searched.
