I use SecureCRT on 2 computers. I have the configuration stored in a Dropbox folder. However this causes some problems because my username isn't the same on both machines. Is there a way, without renaming the account, to have the user directory available under the alternate name, as you would be able to do on a unix system using a symlink?
Yes, use a symlink.
(note: the syntax is mklink <link> <target> which is different from ln -s <target> <link>)
Symlinks are supported as of Windows Vista, and behave pretty much the same way as in Unix, with the exception that there can be "file" symlinks (
Older Windows NT versions, which don't have symlinks, still support directory junctions (
Both kinds of links require a NTFS filesystem.
