I found this article in the MSDN (Jan 00):
HOWTO: Create Hard Links in Windows NT and Windows 2000
Here is a snippet from the summary of the article:
Windows NT and Windows 2000 support hard links on NTFS disk volumes.
Following are two programmatic approaches that exist for creating hard links:
Use CreateHardLink() in Windows 2000.
Use the Win32 BackupWrite() function to construct a hard link
in Windows NT and Windows 2000.
