How to create and use symbolic links in source tree

I am trying to move from clearcase to sourcetree.

In clear case we have a lot of symbolic links.

I need to migrate these links as is to source tree.

I have been going through forums about windows symlinks and it did not help, as i am getting a file with the target path when the committed symlink file is downloaded in another user PC.

I am new to source tree, so please help me with detailed response

I would like to see a tutorial or document on how to do this.

Hi

Sourcetree doesn't know about symlinks, you need to look at support in Git directly. see https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/wiki/Symbolic-Links#creating-symbolic-links I do know Git and symlinks is a complex subject.
