Merge folders into one

Strange one this,,,, I have 4 hard drive drives on my computer (Windows XP) to store video footage, they all have a folder on them in the root of the drive called the same thing. I can never remember which folder I have put something into so Im after a way to make all these folders appear as a drive of their own.

In My computer I want to have a drive letter (non existant drive) which just has the contents of the 4 folders inside. Then I can share this on the network and only check one place for a spcific file.

Anybody know if this is possible and any programs to help me do this?

Thanks

I understand that Partition Magic is capable of doing this type of action, but I have personally never tried it so I provide this on hearsay only. Use this link to read up on the product click here BUT BE WARNED... Partition Magic is NOT for beginners, but then again you sound like you know what you are doing. Good luck.

Have you tried creating short cuts for each file by right clicking. You can then store the short cuts in one folder on one of the drives.

It seems partition magic can merge partitions which would be ok. The thing is sometimes one drive disappears because there is a loose connection I havnt dealt with. Having all drives merged (as opposed to folders merged virtually) will mean when this happens I may get major data corruption.

Anybody know a program that can create virtual drives of a folder you specify, then I can work from there.

Thanks again
