/nesi/nobackup paths and these bookmarks pinned.
2. Symbolic links can be created in your project directories and nobackup directories to enable easy moving of files to and from.
To create a symbolic link from a first to a second directory and vice-versa (using full paths for <first> and <second>):
$ cd <first>
$ ln -s <full_path_to_second> <alias_to_second>
$ cd <second>
$ ln -s <full_path_to_first> <alias_to_first>
Alias can be any value which is convenient to you. .i.e. easy to identify
After you do this, there will be an alias listed in each directory that points to the other directory. You can see this with the ls command, and cd from each to the other using its alias.
