I am using Windows 7 and have successfully mounted an nfs drive using the Windows NFS Client. I would now link to symlink (or create a junction in different terminology) a folder to a location on a native NTFS drive. Is this at all possible or is there another way to accomplish this?

You can use mklink /d to create a directory entry that point to a network share. I haven't tested with NFS.

Note: you need to run this with elevated permissions

I think mklink only works on local drives. – Jason Christa Apr 29 '11 at 1:27
Not true. I tested before posting. We use it in production – uSlackr Apr 29 '11 at 3:18
