A shortcut or mount to /home/username?
I have a FAT32 partition at hda6 (for access to windows). I mounted hda6 to a directory called /osshare. Now, I want to be able to access the content in hda6 from the directory called /home/username/windowsfiles
I know that I can mount hda6 directly to windowsfiles, but I am afraid that when I delete my account, it'll delete all my content in hda6 too.
I am also wondering if there is a way to create a shortcut (like in windows), to do the same job. (In windows, nothing happens to the original when I delete the shortcut.)
I am not too sure if I have the logic right.
Thank you very much.

How about a softlink to the directory? If the softlink gets deleted, the actual directory will remain intact.
ln -s /osshare /home/username/windowsfiles
