    What's the difference between junction points, symbolic links and mounting points in Windows 7?

    If one or more are similar, why use one over the other?

    Regards,

    Joe, now I'm sure that I don't understand. I grok the intention, and sort of the path to get thee, but it is way more than I can trust myself to try right now...

    Oh well, thanks though.
