For *nix users it is quite easy and straight forward to create a symbolic link in the system (e.g. “ln -s”), however this is not so easy on Windows, if you are running a web server (e.g. xampp), and you want to create a link to a folder outside the default Apache Document root, you can try the following plugin for the system.
P.S. only works in NTFS, FAT doesn’t support this kind of file link…. unfortunately.
