How to create linked files

A linked file is a file that contains a reference to another file or directory. There are two types on links soft and hard. A hard link can not access folders on a different volume, where as soft links can. Here’s how to create soft link files.

ln -s source_file link_name
ln -s /media/Gamma Gamma

Links are removed if the source file is removed or has no other files pointing to it. If you want to remove the link use the unlink commend.
