Lets suppose that there are:
- a folder and
- a junction point or a symlink to that folder
When the original folder is moved to a new location, both the junction point and the symlink fail (point to an orphaned location). The failure of the link is not the case when a hard link to a file is created. Any hard link to a file can be moved to other folders and it will still point to the same physical file on the hard drive.
Is there a way to create a 'link' to a folder, so that when the folder is moved, the link 'tracks' the location of that folder and still works after the move operation?
If not, why is this not possible.
