I'm currently syncing my Desktop folder between two Macs using Dropbox. The Desktop folder in my Mac's user folder is an alias to the folder in my Dropbox. This works fine.
On one Mac, I created an alias to another folder on that computer (actually, it's an alias to the Dropbox folder itself, sitting on the desktop). When this alias syncs over to the other Mac, though, the alias doesn't come through correctly. It shows up as a 0 byte text file.
Is there a way that I can make this alias come through correctly to the other Mac and work as expected?
