How to add windows symbolic link to repo

I have windows machine and I would like to add a new directory to my repo with SourcTree Win App.

I have already created Directory Junction and files are seen in SourceTree.
But when I click on them to become Staged files I got this error:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false add -f -- xxx/yyy
fatal: 'xxx/yyy' is beyond a symbolic link

Completed with errors, see above.

 

Is there any chance to add these files to my repo?

I have "solved" the problem by changing target and directory. Now directory is within my local repo and link is created other "folder".

But sill question remains.
