Junctions in Windows Server 2003

The simplest way to create a junction (kinda “hard link”) in Windows Server 2003 is to type junction at the command line followed by name of your link and then its target, like this:

junction c:/tmp/my_ghost_dir c:/this_is_an_important_data_dir

At the console you can enter this command to list hard and symbolic links in a directory and save the listing to a file:

dir /AL /S C:\SOMEDIR > links.txt
