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.
TDS: manual restart seems to fix it (aloog 6 up)

steve: You were vote kicked by some other players who were up to no good. You will be able to rejoin once the server is restarted (at the time of writing the server is full, and I don't want to disrupt their races).
