How do you redirect data from one directory to another?
I am using a program that saves large files incrementally to my C:/ drive. I cannot change the location of where it saves these files. Since I use an SSD this is rather unfeasible as I'll run out of space quite quickly on this drive.
I am looking for an application that will automatically transfer (or initially save) the data to a different internal drive. However, the data must still be accessible via it's originally C:/ drive location. The program will only look in C:/xxx/xxx for the data.
Months ago I read up on something and I unfortunately cannot remember the name. It's basically a folder "loop", where the data appears to be in both folders at once, but in actuality only exists in the one folder. There's a way to set the folders up to act as such via command prompt. As mentioned though I cannot remember the name of this, and couldn't find it through google either.
Thanks and cheers!
In summary: Need data that is constantly generated on C to automatically end up on D yet still be accessible by programs fetching the data via C.

What about MKLINK across mapped drives?
mklink /D c:\a_scans "c:\users\mxxxxx\pictures"
so now the "directory" a_scans will point to my pictures (a_scans has been used for centuries on other machines and many things point that way).
On DESKTOP (XP SP3), I map LAPTOP as T:
I try to access T:\a_scans
and I cannot.
I can access T:\users\mxxxxx\pictures without problem. I thought that mklink made a real directory entry.
Is this a permanent problem, or will it go away if I change DESKTOP to Win 7?
