An NTFS reparse point (JP) is a type of NTFSfile system object. It is available with the NTFS v3.0 found in Windows 2000 or later versions. Reparse points provide a way to extend the NTFS filesystem by adding extra information to the directory entry, so a file system filter can interpret how the operating system will treat the data. This allows the creation of Junction Points, NTFS symbolic links and is a key feature to Windows 2000's Hierarchical Storage System. They also can act as hard links, but aren't limited to point to files on the same volume: they can point to folders on any local volume.

NTFS includes the ability to index file attributes as a means of locating and sorting multiple files that share similar data quickly.
NTFS implements a form of file compression specifically for sparse files in which only nonzero data is written to the file and the file system provides the correct amount of zero data to applications at need.
NTFS does exactly that: for each file it maintains a list of LCN and count pairs identifying the runs in which the file data is stored.
