I just noticed today that windows 7 folder shortcut manages to stay point to the folder even when the folder it points to changes location.
Since when has this feature being available and what's done behind the scene?
I also discovered today that that MS Office's recent documents manage to open even when I moved the file with Windows Explorer.
Are these the same feature? Is it an OS feature? Does it involves file system change? How does the OS or the office manage to follow files?
