Dropbox is a great cloud storage solution, save for one issue: All files and folders synchronized to the cloud must be in a specific share folder. The default share Dropbox creates is called “My Dropbox.”
You can however use symbolic links to have other folders synchronize to the service without having to physically copy files or folders to the default share. See video for details.
Note for Mac OS X and Linux users: Yes, you can use symbolic links in your respective operating systems to accomplish the same thing.
