    Description

      1. Create new directory my_dir;
      2. Enter my_dir and create directory test1 and inside of that create another directory test2 and a file file.txt;
      3. Then create the following symbolic links:
        C:\my_dir>mklink SLTfile test1\file.txt
        symbolic link created for SLTfile <<===>> test1\file.txt
        
        C:\my_dir>mklink /D SLTdir test1\test2
        symbolic link created for SLTdir <<===>> test1\test2
        
        C:\my_dir>mklink /H HLTfile test1\file.txt
        Hardlink created for HLTfile <<===>> test1\file.txt
        
        C:\my_dir>mklink /J HLTdir test1\test2
        Junction created for HLTdir <<===>> test1\test2
        

        This is what should be in my_dir:

        C:\MY_DIR
        |   HLTfile
        |   SLTfile
        |
        +---HLTdir
        +---SLTdir
        \---test1
            |   file.txt
            |
            \---test2
        

      Result:

      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,all,,0]
      3
      
      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,sym,,0]
      0
      
      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,file,,0]
      2
      

      Expected:

      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,all,,0]
      4
      
      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,sym,,0]
      1
      
      zabbix_get.exe -s localhost -k vfs.dir.count[C:\viktors\test\my_dir,,,file,,0]
      2
      

      SLTfile is of type .symlink but it is counted as type file. HLTfile is file and is counted as of type file but SLTdir and HLTdir both are skipped.
      In the documentation it is stated that "On Windows directory symlinks are skipped and hard links are counted only once." so it seems that HLTdir should be counted. And should hard links to files be counted not as type file but as type sym since it is a hard link?

      Maybe here is just a need to change the documentation: "On Windows directory symlinks and hard links are skipped."
