If you move a shared folder inside of another shared folder—perhaps while organizing your Dropbox—the folder will change locations and break any shared links. Shared folders cannot be "nested" within another folder, and this action will register that you have opted to leave the shared folder. Moving a shared folder into another folder means you ...

BitTorrent sync will do what the OP requests. It will copy and sync symlinks as links, without following them. It differs somewhat from services like Dropbox in that there is no cloud involved - just peer to peer communication. There is a free service and a paid service.
