Unix users know and love it, now Windows users have the ability to give a single file multiple names. If you have the existing file C:\DOCS\FILE.DOC and execute the command FileLink C:\MEMO\ANOTHER.DOC C:\DOCS\FILE.DOC, the data of the file will exist only once, but it is accessible in 2 directories using 2 different names.
Changes to the contents of one file affect both...
The link must be on the same disk.
The disk-drive must be formatted using NTFS 5 or higher.
NT2000 or higher.
