in Home windows XP Does anybody know an application that maps multiple sites to 1 virtual drive or directory?
After I open the virtual directory, I wish to see all files from planned sites as though it had been one physical dir.
Linux software mhddfs appears to correspond exactly to my need.
Consider we have two hard drives with the content below: /hdd1 /hdd2 | | +-- /dir1 +-- /dir1 | | | | | +- file2 | +- file4 | | +- file2 +-- file1 | | +-- file5 +-- /dir2 | | +-- /dir3 +- file3 | +- file6 mounting this tree with the command: mhddfs /hdd1,/hdd2 /hdd_common into the specified file system point we will see a combined tree. In the united tree we can see all the directories and files. Note file2 of 2nd hdd is not visible (because 1st hdd has the file2 already). /hdd_common | +-- /dir1 | | | +-- file2 -> /hdd1/dir1/file2 | +-- file4 | |-- /dir2 | | | + file3 | +-- /dir3 | | | +-- file6 | +-- file1 +-- file5
It's less than the answer you would like, but when you are able to accept all source sites getting their very own sub directory inside a new target, you should check out the Home windows tool junction in the Sysinternals Suite.
It enables you to definitely create and manage symbolic links. your tree structure could be something similar to:
E:\hdd_common ├───hdd1 │ └───some folder structure [...] └───hdd2 └───some other folder structure [...]
Refer to it as like:
junction "e:\hdd_common\hdd1" "f:\" junction "e:\hdd_common\hdd2" "g:\"
