What are you trying to setup? A symbolic link generally is just a link to another file location. If you explain what you are trying to setup it would be easier to answer your question.

I think I get what he's asking and it's what I would like to know too.

With an SSD, the loading times etc for programs and documents are faster however. they have limited space.

If I were to store, say a game, on my HDD and Symlink it to my SSD would the game still get the speed boost from the SSD?

I'm thinking not...
