I have one folder within my Dropbox directory, and a link to that folder, also in my Dropbox directory. I use the files within my Dropbox folder on a laptop and a desktop computer.
I thought that since both the symlink and the folder it points to are both within the Dropbox folder that they would operate as usual.
However, after I use the folders on one machine, when I return to the other, the symlink will be replaced with a copy of the contents of the folder it originally pointed to.
Dropbox is completely defeating the purpose of having a symlink. Is there a way I can force Dropbox to preserve the symbolic link relationship between the link and the folder?
