I need to link the same file across multiple folders within Dropbox so that they all sync and update when changes are made to any one version of the file.  How can I do this?

Hi there, @VAExcellence, thanks for posting to our Community.

 

I'm afraid that what you'd like to do here is not possible with Dropbox.

 

You can have the same file in multiple locations, but you can't have the files sync with one another.

 

I hope this clarifies, but let me know if you have any questions!
