A link is defined as the information contained in a parent file that designates the name and the location (drive, folder, etc.) of a child file pointed to by the parent file. To be clear, it’s important to know that when we say “link”, we are referring to the data itself (the file name, the file path, etc.) that tells your computer what child file to display and where to find that child file.
