    make two folders appear as one?


    OK I am not sure if I can do this or not but I would like to ask. I have two 2 TB hard drives for media. I filled up the first one with mostly movies and on the second drive I have my music, TV shows, and another folder for movies. So I have two movie folders over two drives. Is there a way that I can setup a virtual folder I guess that I can view all my movies in one folder even though they are on different drives?

    You can mount one of the drive in a folder of other drive or create a symlink of mount point.

    You can use mhddfs to combine a few directories into one

    mhddfs is a good option. Actually, better than my suggestion.
