qbittorrent does not follow shortcuts for "last" folder in save path #10481

Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

qbit 4.1.5, Windows 10

What is the problem

If the last part (any) of the Default Save Path is actually a shortcut to another folder, qbittorrent does not follow the last part to the "actual" location. It creates a new folder, called the same name as the shortcut.

What is the expected behavior

Follow all shortcuts, for all folder paths, on all options.

Steps to reproduce

Create a folder called C:\Downloads
Create a folder called D:\Torrents
Under C:\Downloads, create a shortcut called "Torrents" that points to "D:\Torrents".
Set qbittorrent Default Save Path to "C:\Downloads\Torrents"
Download something.
qbittorrent creates a new folder under "C:\Downloads" called "Torrents". It should see that there is already a shortcut called "Torrents" there, that points to a folder. It should follow that shortcut.
