Hello!

I was wondering if it is possible to create links under the Windows operating system, similar to those in UNIX systems. I am wanting to create a link to some things located in my Mac partition when I create my Windows and Linux partitions. The reason I want to do this is to access my iTunes stuff easily while doing homework in Windows, and not having to move my files onto Windows to use them. =)

QUOTE Thanks

Windows doesn't support the soft/hard links concept the way other Unix-based OS' do..like Linux and Mac OS..

They have the "shortcut", but that's more of a convenience to a specific program as opposed to a pointer to a directory..
