This is a niffty little tool which I found out about a few months back and have been using in the server for a while now to great effect. It can save drive space if you have duplicate files on your PC. It might not be of use to everyone of course but I thought I'd share it anyway.
It allows you to 'copy' a file or folder by dropping a link (junction) which instead of copying the file/folder which of course uses HD space, it creates a direct link which reads like the file/folder is actually there.
Example use on our server: We have 7 Assetto Corsa servers running, all of which have their own blacklist. By using this tool they all stay in sync and are updated immediately (although a server restart is required for them to take effect). So if someone is blacklisted from one server, their GUID is blacklisted on all servers. Also, each AC server has a 'content' folder which has every track and car folder in it to reference against cheats. These folders can be quite large so using a 'junction link' they can save a lot of space by only having to be present in one place. It also means we only have to update one folder and all the others are linked to it.
A bit long winded but I'm sure some of you will find a use for it.
