I've moved My Documents to another drive. Windows still shows My Documents in C:\Users\Username\My Documents and links this to D:\...

Can I do the same with my Dropbox folder? I want a virtual "Dropxbox" folder insider C:\Users\Username\, that links to the Dropbox on drive D. It should be displayed as a folder, not a link, as a .lnk file would.

This seems to be possible for special folders by using the FolderName.{CSLID} syntax, e.g. for "Network locations". Is there a similar way for Dropbox?


You could create a symbolic link to the DropBox folder.

In the Command Line type: mklink /J D:\DropboxFolder C:\OtherFolder
