I'd like to synchronise some configuration files via a file hoster like Dropbox. I could create a hard link in the software's configuration folder and let it point to my cloud storage directory.
When having done that, is there a difference between those two files? I read somewhere that both files are attributes of the file in the master file table and that there would be no difference at all.
On the other hand, on Windows, directory junctions via
mklink can be found using
dir /AL /S, so they somehow differ from real directories.
Is that correct?
