From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Volume Mount Points are specialized NTFS filesystem objects which are used to mount and provide an entry point to other volumes. Mount points can be created in a directory on an NTFS file system, which gives a reference to the root directory of the mounted partition. In fact, any empty directory can be converted to a mount point. The mounted volume is not limited to the NTFS filesystem but can be formatted with any file system supported by Microsoft Windows. Volume Mount Points are supported from NTFS 5.0, which was introduced with Windows 2000. This is not as powerful or as useful as a regular POSIX mount point found in Unix and Unix-like systems.
