Paths shown in DIR /B

Jan 25, 2011
I would expect Dir /B to show just filenames and nothing else. But in some cases and not others the full path is quoted in square brackets after the filename, Why is this?
I am running Take Command v24.02.50 x64 on Windows 10 and giving the command dir /B on a folder in Dropbox (folder is in the cloud)
Most likely, you're seeing junctions. The directory in brackets is the target of the junction. The option /NL should disable this feature. (I'm kind of surprised that /B doesn't disable it automatically.)
