Default Reaper doesn't understand junctions (FIXED)

I use a junction to deal with project complications. Reaper doesn't understand that two paths that point to the same place are identical. Instead, it saves duplicate files to the exact same location with a file increment.

e.g.,

C:\Projects\MyProject
A:\MyProject (A junction pointing to C:\Projects\MyProject)

When loading a project from the first path then saving it to the second path, reaper duplicates(with file increment) all the files.

Suggestions:

1. Resolve the junction to see if it is the same path as the save path

2. Check if the files being duplicated already exist and ask to use them(could do a binary compare or something).

(I noticed this because of a crash and I loaded the project from the non-junction path, when I saved the project, reaper "converted"/"saved" all the items to the "new" path)
