  • 6. Hard link hard link maintains the same permissions and access times of the original file both have same inode number - simply appears to have different filename and/or location 6 Create and change hard and symbolic links •Changes to either the original file or the link affect both. •The two files have equal importance. But deleting either of files won’t affect the other. •Hard link files appear to be regular files when examined and they function this way as well • Normal users can’t create hard links to directories. • Also, hard links aren’t allowed to span file systems To create a hard link, use the ln command # ln stuff2 /home/angie/stuff # ls –al -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 89704 Aug 27 2000 stuff -rw-r--r-- 2 root root 89704 Aug 27 2000 stuff2 Ex:
