I have tried the Dropbox syncing method described in here:

And even though I tried to follow instruction very closely, I failed, probably because I suck unix commands.

This question doesn't have enough information in it to be answerable, but I'm going to assume that's just because you're not sure where to start.

First thing's first--checking to see if ShoveBox's library is symlinked to its location in Dropbox.

In terminal, do ls -l ~/Library/Application\ Support/Shovebox

If the output shows a regular file and not a symlink, then you'll need to basically start over. If it is a symlink, the output will look something like lrw-r--r-- 1 user group 198656 Jun 26 14:00 ShoveBox Database -> ../../../Dropbox/ShoveBox Database

If not, it'll look more like -rw-r--r-- 1 user group 198656 Jun 26 14:00 ShoveBox Database

Give us some more information and we may be able to help.
