Developer's Description

WinHardLink allows you to create virtual paths to the file system objects. Virtual paths can simulate files, folders and even disk drives. The operating system (OS) treats virtual paths the same way it treats physical paths. In essence, we are misleading OS by replacing the real path with a virtual (false) one. One can find a certain similarity between virtual objects and the well-known shortcuts. While they are really quite similar in many ways, virtual paths can be used for a much wider range of tasks. Shortcuts (which are essentially files with the extension .lnk) are only used to simplify the user's navigation in the Windows Explorer. But virtual paths, as mentioned earlier, aren t any different from the file system's physical objects, and any actions performed on the virtual object are the same as the ones performed on the corresponding physical object. In other words, we can call the virtual path a super-shortcut or a symlink (as it's called in UNIX).
