What is the difference between a symbolic link and a hard link

0 votes
Recently I was asked this during a job interview. I was honest and said I knew how a symbolic link behaves and how to create one, but do not understand the use of a hard link and how it differs from a symbolic one. Any help will be appreciated!!
