Without comment, so far:
C:\Users\steier\Documents\GooDocs\Privat\Dropbox>mklink /J E-PraktSS2011 “C:\Users\steier\Documents\GooDocs\Arbeit\Lehre\Praktikum\Elektronikpraktikum\SS2011”
… and DropBox syncs local folder “C:\Users\steier\Documents\GooDocs\Arbeit\Lehre\Praktikum\Elektronikpraktikum\SS2011” to Dropbox folder “E-PraktSS2011”.
Oops… does not re-sync when files are changed on Vista!What I wrote to the blog where is saw this hint:
What you have to do is move the original data into the dropbox folder, and then create the symlink from the previous position. This info is from
However, if you move or rename the folder in the dropbox, it will no longer be found through the symlink. And there are other problems, e.g. AlwaySync will follow the Junction like a Directory, and copy the files twice to the backup, which smells like data loss…
On Android, the dropbox app does not autosync files; the third-party app dropsync seems to use the time stamp as only criterion for changes. Also this is bound to fail. Apparently, the cloud is still a construction area with a lot of danger for my data.
