Sync to Dropbox from anywhere in your home folder
Authored by: shauber on Oct 15, '09 09:31:36AM

I've actually been doing the the other way around (moving the directories into the dropbox, and replacing them with symlinks). I thought dropbox would just sync out the link, and not the contents that were linked to. Good to know, and now I'll have to switch this all back :-D

I do it the other way around too... If you want to use it to sync files between machines then I think you have to since you can't have one symlink pointing to multiple locations, but you can have multiple symlinks pointing to one location.
