You Learn Something New Everyday.

Hopefully. Today I learned that using Disk-Manager in Windows XP you can attach a (external)drive to a folder on your system drive so that when the external drive is plugged in, it will appear as if all its contents are in this other folder. The poser on this Ask Me-Fi topic says it better:

Provided your internal hard disk is formatted with NTFS, you can create an empty folder on that (say, C:\Backups) and use the Disk Management console to attach the [external drive] to that folder (either instead of or as well as giving it a drive letter). Any time the [external drive] is plugged in, all its files and folders will then appear to be inside C:\Backups regardless of drive letter shenanigans…

How awesome is that? What did YOU learn today?
