Virtual directory

Hi,

I Have a space disk on a Windows 2003 server.

Is it possible to move a directory to another disk (on then same server in my case), and to 'mount' the directory to the new place (like mount command on Unix).


Thanks

If i am understanding you properly ; you mean to create symbolic links kind of thing ?
You can use NTFS Junction Points to create what you are after ;

The above link will have the full information on using Junctions in NTFS file system.

Indeed there is. It's called a junction point. Renamed to symbolic link on Vista/Server 2008 systems

Does work very well. Be very careful when removing them or deleting folders that "may" have junction points.
