Publisher's Description

JunctionMaster allows you to MOVE and LINK a folder to another drive in one easy step. It replaces the original folder with a hard link (junction point). These have been around in NTFS since its inception, but only in Windows 7 does the shell show any indication that it is a link.

This is the 32-bit edition of JunctionMaster.

Great program. Junctions allow you to move files to another drive or location, but "tricks" applications and windows into thinking it's in the same spot. This means you can move things that otherwise would break programs to other locations. This program is the easiest way to create/remove junctions in windows I've ever used, and for an Alpha it works great.

Be careful though, you have to be aware that if you delete the junction, the files are deleted in *both* locations, the originals and the linked location. If you mess up, it's your fault. This isn't the fault of the program, any NTFS junction whether created via command line or by this program works this way, so don't go screaming at this guy if you delete something.

The developer has also been really responsive, donate if you like it!

I get it I think. If you want to change a program folder in windows to a separate drive altogether it will break the installation. With this, it keeps it working intact without actually using the space.
Great little tool and thanks for the explanation.

Much easier than doing this with command line.

Thanks!

I think it's a great idea and could be a very useful utility. Most people don't even know about NTFS junctions, let alone using command line tools to use them. The lack of reviews are due to it being released right before the New Year holiday. In fact I just read about the program today on Ghacks.com.

No reviews? I'd really like to hear if anyone found this useful. If so, I may continue with it. If not, I'll drop it. It could use some usability improvements, no doubt about that -- but is the 'bare essentials' for such a utility. Do you want this? Yes/No? Don't care (No)?

@dirtypillows: Thanks ;). I will continue development of this after receiving very positive feedback from you and others. I thought about changing the name, but will lave as is (probably). The problem is that most users won't know WTF a 'Junction' is.
