I am using VirtualBox on Windows 7 with Ubuntu as a guest OS. I have installed the Guest OS Additions and know how to share folders and automatically mount them.
My question is out of pure curiosity. What would happen if I set my Dropbox folder in Ubuntu to be the exact same folder/share as in Windows. Would this cause any problems with syncing with the server?
I suppose I can test it out myself in the VM, since I can always revert any changes I make. But I am curious if anyone else has tried this. If there were no problems, would it be a good idea?
EDIT: After thinking about it, the best option would probably be to use the Windows Dropbox folder in the Ubuntu VM, but let Windows take care of the syncing. Dropbox would not need to be installed/running in the VM in this case.
