    Default Creating a file reference.

    Is there any way to create file refrences so that it look's like there is a file in a directory while it actually is in a different directory?

    That depends on the operating system and its file system, e.g. Linux can easily do it with its ext2/ext3/ext4 file system(s); I don't know about MS Windows ...

    kind regards,

    NTFS actually does support its own version of symbolic links; just not "out of the box".
