Is there any way to redirect one NTFS folder to another? Say, to access C:\Program Files\Modules through S:\Modules? There is subst for mounting folders as drives, and diskpart and mountvol for mounting drives in folders, but I've been unable to combine the two successfully. Is it possible to achieve this?

MORE INFO: I found out about the mklink utility, but unfortunately it isn't available on Windows XP.

You can create a junction which is the equivalent of a symlink in NTFS.

  • They appear to be the same but work only for directories. NTFS also has proper symlinks since Vista.
