shortcuts to music files

Postby kevin32 » Tue Apr 26, 2011 4:42 pm

Is it possible to put all songs in one root directory, then create shortcuts that point to the respective song in the root directory? So instead of putting multiple copies of the same song in different directories, the shortcut would be used in each directory to point to the one song in the root directory. Of course, HLDJ would read the shortcut, and load the respective song in the root directory.

I'd imagine that would work yes. You'd need to create symbolic links or hardlinks ("junction points"), either should work fine on Windows 7 if you have admin privileges on your system. The built-in support is through the command "mklink", but if you're looking for a GUI interface you might need to install 3rd-party tools. See here for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS_symbolic_link
