Windows 7: Symbolic link across drives?

Symbolic link across drives?

I am new to Windows 7 and new to using symlinks. Please bear with me.

I am trying to make a hard link to a file on a RAM disk, but I get the error

"The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive."

I can't make a directory link to the RAM disk because I cannot fit all the files in the original directory on the RAM disk. I need to make a couple links file-to-file.

I am trying to use the command

mklink /h lichking.mpq j:\lichking0.mpq

like that. I would be very grateful if someone can come up with a solution to this problem!
