Dropbox File Sync Available & Works With Vista MKLINK Symbolic Links

September 15th, 2008 Mark Leave a comment Go to comments

Just a quick post about Dropbox – it’s now out of beta and anyone can sign up.. I just have and I was pretty glad to find out that you don’t need to copy all your stuff into the folder that Dropbox creates on each machine (at least with Vista).

If you’re using Vista, navigate to your Dropbox folder via the command line and type:

mklink

e.g.

mklink CM2004 c:\projects\cm2004

Now Dropbox is happily syncing away as if the folder had just been copied into the Dropbox folder
