I'm basically trying to do selective syncing with Dropbox between my Windows and Mac machines. The problem is the folder I want to sync in Windows resides in a different path in OSX (naturally).

Is there anyway I could link two folders (in different paths) from OSX and windows so they can sync through Dropbox?

Appreciate your help.

Latest beta version should have that functionality. Please see

Just wondering, have you tried creating symlinks to the folders you want? You can create a folder which is a symlink on mac and windows. Symlink can point to 2 different locations on 2 different machines.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Priyank

symlinks only get crawled once so avoid infinite loop scenarios. you have to restart dropbox every time you want to sync symlinks. – Sun Apr 21 at 15:53
