What is the difference between a hard link and a symbolic link?
What is the difference between a physical link and a symbolic link?
Linking is a method of creating access to different paths to different sites, which will allow us to access the same file from different paths in the directory tree to simplify the path and facilitate access.
In Linux, there are two types of links, hard links and symbolic links, we can use the ln command to create links, and we can use man ln to access their manuals.
To create a symbolic link, we use the command ln -s or ln-symbolic.
When we delete the original file, the link will stop working.
To create a symbolic link, we use the command ln ln /home/elizabeth/Vídeos/Holberton/file1.txt ./Links/LinkHard
When we delete the original file, the link will not stop working and access will not be removed.
