A big complaint I have about Dropbox is that unlike SugarSync, it doesn’t allow me to sync any folder in my computer (essentially, I need to place the folders I want to be synced inside the “Dropbox” folder).

Recently, I found a workaround for this problem. Here’s the trick to syncing any folder in your computer: softlink the folder to your Dropbox folder!

If you’re using a Mac (or Linux), just use the following command:

    ln -s /full-path-to-folder/file-to-sync ~/Dropbox/desired-folder-name

That’s it, from now on, all file(s) in the actual path would now sync with Dropbox.
