If this has been working for you under Windows seven, then this is something of note.
In XP and Vista, if you make a link to a shortcut, and then delete the shortcut you linked to, then in CD you get a ? mark, or worse the link is gone altogether.
Essentially it would break the chain after deleteing from the desktop.
I am curious if this does work, and what method you utilize to build your CD shortcut links.
Maybe it is something we are doing wrong, that you are doing right, that allows you o delete the desktop shortcut when you have esteblished the CD link?
If you are willing I would appreciate some quick notes on how you are building your links to non primary drives
