So i understand I could probably just use CRON to do this, because I can symlink directories under base using

ln -s /base/* /target

But just wondering if anybody knows a way to have this automatically happen. When A new directory is created under base a new symlink is created under target without re-running symlink command.

My scenario:

I have Kodi scrape a folder called TV in /target

But I have giant TV shows (over 100GB's) on a separate disk.

I want everything from

base/tv2/(Giant TV Shows) 

to show under

/target/tv/(Gaint TV Shows)

Without having:

  • And where should that symlink point to? If the top directory is a link, it doesn't contain any directories anyways, what you see are the directoryies of the original target. – deviantfan Dec 2 '15 at 23:06
  • ? I am confused by your question, but I will give a file tree example for my scenario – FreeSoftwareServers Dec 2 '15 at 23:09
