reparse point

A redirection capability in the Windows NTFS file system. Containing up to 16KB of data and a tag indicating their purpose, reparse points are somewhat similar to Windows shortcuts and Unix symbolic links. For example, a reparse point would allow a folder such as C:\DVD to point to E:, the actual DVD drive. A reparse point may be used to point to a file that has been temporarily relocated on a different drive. See shortcut and symbolic link.
