Mountpoints are a way to have a folder on one drive actually reside on another drive, yet appear to the user to be on the same drive. For example, the folder MyBigVideos could appear to the user on drive C:, but using a mountpoint, it could actually reside on a different physical drive, such as D:, so that it consumes no actual space on drive C:.
