Default Re: Moving program files 'Warning' messages

"junctions" under NTFS are same as symbolic links under Linux. You can understand them as pointers. Let's say the directory is physically located at "d:\program files", but you create a symbolic link at "c:\bin" pointing to "d:\program files". Now when you install new software to "c:\bin", it will get stored at "d:\program files". This is VERY handy..

What I did already under XP is point new "c:\home" to "c:\documents and settings", as "c:\home" is much easier to type, and made other shortcuts as shown. Pays off if you like command line.
