Does Junction occupy disk space?

Posted: 08-21-2006, 09:51 AM
Hi,
I want to know something about Junction introduced in Vista.
Does Junction occupy any disk space? If it occupies then how can I find out
it's size?

Can someone point me to some link where I can know more about junction.

Thanks,
Pushkar

Yes, junctions occupy a very small amount of disk space. Just enough to
identify them as junctions and tell where they point to.
