# ln -s /home/steve/directory /tmp/directory # rm /tmp/directory
In testing, the original directory (/home/steve/directory) did not get removed
I'm a newbie Steve so maybe will be asking more than answering here. But isn't it the case that with a soft link as you created in the first line in the second line you'd only be deleting the link itself and not the actual directory? But if you used a hard link
# ln /home/steve/directory /tmp/directory # rm /tmp/directory
then the real directory would be deleted?
