@vindex w32-get-true-file-attributes
If the variable @code{w32-get-true-file-attributes} is
non-@code{nil} (the default), Emacs tries to determine the accurate
link counts for files. This option is only useful on NTFS volumes,
and it considerably slows down Dired and other features, so use it
only on fast machines.
If the variable @code{w32-get-true-file-attributes} is @code{local}
(the default), Emacs tries to determine the accurate link counts and
file types for files on local fixed drives. Any other non-@code{nil}
value means do this even on remote and removable volumes, where it
could slow down Dired and other similar features; @code{nil} means
never do this. Setting this option to non-@code{nil} is only useful
on NTFS volumes.
