The Win32-junction-point package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package provides the ability to manipulate NTFS junction points as supported by Windows 2000 and above. Junction points, along with NTFS hard links and NTFS symbolic links, are a type of symbolic link that can be made between folders existing on the same filesystem. Please read Microsoft KB205524 [1] for more information on junction points.

Junction points have always been left undocumented in the Win32 SDK. The Windows 2000 Resource Kit came with a command-line utility named linkd.exe to work with them. Later, Mark Russinovich of SysInternals distributed a replacement utility named Junction [2] which accomplished the same thing.

This source code is based on an article [3] and C++ library [4] written by Mike Nordell at

It is against Microsoft's recommendation to make use of undocumented API features. Use this library at your own risk.
