Virtual Directories are just a pointer to the directory path so the directory path is not accessible from the web using the original directory name, This is good for many reasons, 1. Use a directory outside the path of the website. 2. Directory Names, so if your directory is named Files_reports_Store_Sales you can name your VD SalesReports and it will render the content in your directory it is pointing to.

Virtual Applications are just like your website, It is a group of files that provides services over protocols, it uses its own scripting or AppPool, It has all the options of a website. but also acts as a virtual directory letting you place the directory path outside the website root, and using a name other than the directory name Files_reports_Store_Sales you can name your VD SalesReports.
