There maybe third party tools on windows that can hack one directory

If you have tight control over the Windows machines, you can create a small NTFS volume with the appropriate permissions and mount it to more or less any directory path you like (this is supported from at least Windows 2000 onwards). That would obviously have to be set up in advance and is a truly horrible workaround, but it would do it...
