The Linkd Utility
Posted on 2011-09-02
I just used the Linkd tool to create junction points for a couple of large but little used directories on the system drive of a Windows Server 2003 that i moved to another drive to free up space. I have two questions about using this method to free up space on the system drive.
First, In explorer on the server the junction points seem to be indistinguishable from a directory that actually resides on the drive. Is there a way to tell a junction from an actual directory in Server 2003, or to list all junction points on the server?
Second, how much of an overhead penalty is there when using a junction point that point to another drive on the same server?
Thanks for your help!
