From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An NTFS reparse point is a type of NTFS file system object. It is available with the NTFS v3.0 found in Windows 2000 or later versions. Reparse points provide a way to extend the NTFS filesystem by adding extra information to the directory entry, so a file system filter can interpret how the operating system will treat the data. This allows the creation of junction points and NTFS symbolic links and is a key feature to Windows 2000's Hierarchical Storage System. They also can act as hard links, but aren't limited to point to files on the same volume: they can point to directories on any local volume.[1]
