Can I create a junction point in Windows XP Embedded Standard?

Is there a way to create a junction point in Windows XP Embedded Standard? I need to redirect my SoftwareDistribution folder to a USB drive. My drive on my thin client keeps filling up and giving me "out of virtual memory" errors.

Thank you.. I chcked out that article and it looks a little convoluded.. Is there any easier way to do this? It would be nice if I could enable a "Target" tab on the SoftwareDistribution folder just like on the My Documents folder..

Hi,

Well, Junction Link Magic is freeware software which automatically creates junction point for you. Let's see if it works on your Windows XP Embedded. Check this: http://www.rekenwonder.com/linkmagic.htm

I found the program junction.exe and have used that. Apparently when you set it up, it only works on an empty folder so I had to rename SoftwareDistribution to SoftwareDistributionOld. Then it ran like a charm. the information I found on it is located here:
