I can use mklink, but I am wondering are there any GUI tools available?

Care to explain what it says? –  Ivo Flipse Apr 30 '11 at 20:33
    
@Ivo Flipse: I understand that we shouldn't just link external sources because of link rot (and I don't do it). But is it really necessary to copy the answers from other Stack Exchange sites when we can just link them? Maybe mark this question as a duplicate then? –  Siim K May 1 '11 at 7:16
    
Just copy the answer and attribute it. Unless its the same user, its not the OPs fault this was asked and answered on SF. So no worries :) –  Ivo Flipse May 1 '11 at 7:21
    
The problem is/was that the SF question did not contain a definite answer. It still feels weird to copy ALL the suggestions. But I've updated my answer –  Siim K May 1 '11 at 7:33
    
Well in that case you have an excellent opportunity to provide a definite answer ;-) Because while your links are an improvement, they don't really explain much :-( As for copying, if you attribute it, copying between sites shouldn't be any different than from any other site –  Ivo Flipse May 1 '11 at 8:02

Welcome to Super User! Generally we like answers on the site to be able to stand on their own - Links are great, but if that link ever breaks the answer should have enough information to still be helpful. Please consider editing your answer to include more detail. See the FAQ for more info. –  slm Apr 3 '13 at 18:53

BitSum JunctionMaster

JunctionMaster is a small and simple shell extension that will allow you to MOVE and LINK a folder in one easy step. It focuses on MOVING the folder, then replacing the original folder with a hard link (junction) to the new location. Windows (and the user) can reference the files at the same location as before, but the actual storage of them is on the other drive. It is handy for new hard drives, and also in the case of SSDs where you may wish to redirect some folders with lots of RW activity to a conventional HDD.
