Lightbulb Making the content of two folders appear in one folder.


I'm kind of new to Linux so this may be a far fetched idea but I'm trying to somehow make 2 folder on separate drives appear as one.

Basically, I got two folders:

I'd like to create a samba share 'music' with the contents of both those music directories so that when someone goes to the music share folder they see all the files/folders of /mnt/hdd1/music/ and /mnt/hdd2/music/

Is this possible or am I crazy?

Yep... you are better off, anyway, having a separate directory to share music from. Put all the shared files there. (If you like, you can put all symbolic links in there...)
