Publisher description for Link Folder

Link Folder program icon

Link Folder is a Windows shell extension which creates folder links to existing Folders. A folder link is a Junction point or symbolic link, which points to another folder called a target folder on the same file system. The folder link appears as its target folder in a different location and is transparent for any Windows application and and user operations. It is like a symbolic link for directory on Unix systems. In some situations you want to share a folder by different purpose, you need create a folder link in a different folder to point to the shared folder. If you create a folder link by linkd.exe from Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit, deleting the folder link will deletes files in the target folder without warning. This is a big problem impeding people to use the junction point feature provided by new Windows versions. This problem is resolved by Link Folder. If Link Folder is installed, it detects if a folder link will be deleted. When a folder link is deleted, Link Folder removes its junction point first before the folder link is deleted. It shows an Overlay icon on each folder link to indicate that it is a junction point. Main Features Create folder link Creates folder links from Windows Explorer. Remove folder link Removes folder links from Windows Explorer. Show folder link Shows an overlay icon on each folder link in Windows Explorer. Safe deletion When a link folder is deleted from Explorer
