As mentioned previously, I’m a strong proponent of symlinks and use them on Windows 7 a lot to save space, sometimes you may wonder where the heck this symlink is actually pointing to
A lot of people use SSD’s (solid state drives) nowadays, here’s a critical tip that will help you to avoid data loss in the future
I don’t want to put everything on my SSD, so I decided to simply install Filezilla on my SSD but link to the profiles on my old HDD instead of creating a new profile. That’s handy because they will always stay “synchronized” (the same).
If you plan to use a SSD or you already use one, you should not put everything on your SSD. I recommend to keep you normal HDD as a 2nd operating system. Luckily, you can create a symlink to use your Thunderbird profiles on multiple hard drives, e.g. your SSD and HDD.
I frequently use symbolic links on Linux, but I rarely use them on Windows 7. However, creating symlinks in Windows 7 is really easy via mklink. Here’s the syntax and a simple example.
