Create a symbolic link or directory junction

C:\Accounts\accounts.mdb /wrkgrp B:\acc.mdw
mklink /d “C:\Accounts” “C:\Users\Gail\OneDrive\Accounts\”

mklink /d “C:\inetpub\wwwroot” “d:\inetpub\wwwroot\”
mklink /d “C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config” “D:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\”

To do the same with individual files:
mklink /h "H:\Box Sets\target\original.mp4" "H:\Box Sets\Source\original.mp4"
mklink /h "H:\Box Sets\Disney\The Sound of Music (1965).mp4" "H:\Child Movies\The Sound of Music (1965).mp4"
