Surely not?

A final path is the path that is returned when a path is fully resolved. For example, for a symbolic link named "C:\tmp\mydir" that points to "D:\yourdir", the final path would be "D:\yourdir".

Just use that to translate the saved dir path when checking. Should be a few lines of code? At the very least, it could be used as an first choice check before binary compare. Of course, I'm assuming implementation is rather straightforward.
