Junction Link Magic

I've fiddled with Windows enough to know that you can mount partitions inside empty folders on NTFS partitions, so I sort of knew you could do symlink-like things (just like symlinks in Linux). I don't know why I never used Google before, and I was amazed to see that you can either use the Windows 2000 Resource Kit to do the trick, or you can use this lovely freeware application called Junction Link Magic, which I've just used to do some tidying up - all the warnings do seem like overkill for an application that appears to work perfectly. I now have several folders from several drives inside a single folder. This has made my day (I'm easily pleased)! Apparently you can get tools to create links to files, rather than just play around with folders, but I'm more than happy with this.
