The possibility to create hardlinks of files and junctions of folders across the active and inactive Freecommander folders would be greatly appreciated. Or maybe have I overseen that this functionality is already there?

Using fsutil doesn't work, because it needs administrative privileges... :-(

That is feature that I'm missing a lot and that's making me to use FAR. Just for this single feature.

I suspect that creating folder symlinks will always require admin privileges, especially in Vista and later.

One free option for creating links and junctions is SymLinker http://code.google.com/p/symlinker/
