Look into <your-interchange-path>/construct/config/post_copycommands.
You can see

To enable image upload feature, you need to make a symbolic
link of the image base directory into your catalog directory.

man ln tell me

     The options are as follows:

     -f    Unlink any already existing file, permitting the link to occur.

     -s    Create a symbolic link.

     -v    Cause ln to be verbose, showing files as they are processed.

Maybe a


can solve your trouble.
