(SOLVED) DropBox, change folder

Postby karlheinz.koesseler » Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:34 pm

Dropbox creates the folder \Home\Dropbox and synchronizes this folder.
Can I change this folder e.g. to \folder\Dropbox1?

Thx and rgds,
KK

Hi karlheinz,
Currently we do not offer a simple way to do this.
If you are familiar with Linux command, you can create a symbolic link under \Home\Dropbox.
Otherwise it is better to wait for our next update..

I tried this also but can not find where to change the default dropbox folder except under Home. However, I later found out that when I login under different user name and connect to my different drop box accounts, under Home /dropbox, each user can only view his own dropbox sync.

If so, I think it is reasonable to put the dropbox box sync under Home as this is the only place now creating automatically the user specific folder.

I need to change folder urgently, since there is no ability to change the properties of folder "Home".

Please update the app with changing folder function.

Thanks,

gtjack
