HardLinker is a shell extension DLL which allows you to easily Create hardlinks on Windows 2000 and NT4.
HardLinks allow that a file (and ONLY files) can have multiple paths to it. When you create a hardlink to a file, the original file and the hardlink share the same information like File Attributes, file-content etc, but the data is not stored twice. If you need a file at several positions on your partition, you don't have to copy them any- more. You just can create hardlinks. This saves you diskspace and all the hardlinks share always the same content. If you have i.e. an include file you need in every of your project you can create hardlinks to the original file. When you update one of these hardlinks, all other links are affected too.
The file system keeps a hard-link reference counter on each file. Only when you delete the last hardlink of a file, the file is deleted, too.
Features: Create hard links (what else :-) Integrated into explorer (Shell extension)
