Cool trick for WinXP
« on: April 18, 2005, 12:29:51 PM »
Here's a cool tip: I've always wanted to be able to do make those cool logical links in windows that you can make in bash, but I didn't thing it was possible in cmd.

However, they're called hardlinks in cmd, and you can create them with fsutil like this:

fsutil hardlink create newFileName existingFileName

I know it's not really a big deal, but the new XP cmd is much more powerful than it's predecessors.  Mmmmmmmm....

It only works if you have NTFS though.
