Sync to Dropbox from anywhere in your home folder
Authored by: leamanc on Oct 15, '09 12:58:03PM

Good hint, but this is not exactly news. People have been asking for "ad-hoc" Dropbpx syncing from the beginning, and it is covered on Dropbox's wiki pages how to do this. Dropbox says they plan on adding a true ad-hoc file sync feature, but for right now they point OS X and Linux users to symlinks as a workaround, and the equivalent feature in Windows (sorry, don't know what's it called off-hand in Windows).

And as mentioned above, aliases won't work. It must be symlinks, or Dropbox will just sync the alias file itself.
