I recently discovered how to use symbolic links in Windows 7, and I've already started imagining and implementing uses for them. One such usage is to link a program's folder in Google Drive, allowing the folder to be backed up and synced between my other computers with that program installed. I've started doing this with programs that store their settings in small files and will probably back up my saved game files this way. But before I get too excited and start linking all kinds of program folders, I have a concern. Will uninstalling the program also removed the linked files?
For example, if uninstalling a program normally deletes the "Settings" folder, and consequently all files inside, will that folder and those files also be deleted if the "Settings" folder is attached via a symbolic link?
