Linking Files
'''Advantages''' of symbolic links are that they are shortcuts to other files, where the symbolic link only contains the pathname to the original file, you can create symbolic links on different Unix/Linux servers, and that you can create symbolic links for directories.
'''Disadvantages''' of symbolic links are that they are NOT good for backup purposes <br>since a symbolic link can point to a nonexistent file (referred to as a "broken link").
