PostPosted: Tue May 27, 2003 8:00 pm   Post subject: Link folders

on unix machines you can link your folders together. so that it appears as if the folders are being displayed in more than one folder.
ie: C:\pics --> it has a file called ladies.jpg
you refrence the files from pics into another folder
C:\pics2 --> it now has ladies.jpg in it

the upside to this is that you have the file in multiple folders but it doesn't actually exist there, in turn it doesnt take up space

anyone know how i could accomplish this in windows xp(pro)?

you mean like combining to folders, but the files are still kept in their own seperate folders?
I am definately not an expert with Windows XP, there is nothing i've ever heard of that'll do this.

Blade, you'll need to set up a RAID configuration.

why don't u edit the apache config file like this

Alias /myfiles/ "D:/mydir/anotherdir/myfilesdir/"


so to go to "D:/mydir/anotherdir/myfilesdir/index.htm" you type in "http://www.url-of-my-website.com/myfiles/index.htm"
