It should be quite easy to get the junction target and compare it to the saved path target. If they are the same, then just use one or the other(shouldn't matter with relative paths I imagine). Might have to recurse for junctions of junctions.

One could do a binary check of the files, in fact, it might be a good idea to "reuse" files but I think it would require a full binary compare for safety but could be slow in some cases.

I'm like Ken, I use junctions all the time for similar reasons. I don't see why getting the *real* path that the project was opened in and the *real* path that it is being saved in, and if they are the same, do not create extra files. Seems like something rather trivial?
