I have two accounts on my computer. One has a password, the other doesn't. They both need access to the same files but I'd also like to keep these files backed up. I'm doing stenography and these are my personal dictionaries. They're going to change a lot over time and I'd like to have access to those changes from one account to the other.
I use the stenography account because it's a clean desktop which isn't cluttered with thousands of icons from all my other interests (game-dev, communications programs, etc). It's where I do transcription services for work.
What I need:
I do not want the other account having access to my home folder. It's not password protected so anyone could get into my stuff. I need a single folder, which is automatically backed up whenever changes are made (preferably in my dropbox folder), to be accessible to both accounts.
I've tried 777ing the folder and putting a link in the / directory of the hard drive. That didn't work.
