Does anybody are conscious of linkd.exe is going to do the task for that symlinking part?

thanks!

linkd.exe and mklink can perform this. Linkd.exe are available here

mklink can be obtained as standard on home windows 2008. Observe that mklink necessitates the /D argument particularly for symlinking folders
