Explorer | Level 3

I am designing a Windows app that, among other things, will tell the user the sync status of their Dropbox account. The simplest option for me is to check for the Green mark icon overlay in explorer.exe or the Dropbox TaskBar icon. However, there does not seem to be a simple Windows API method to return whether the overlay icon is the Green mark icon overlay. Any suggestions? What other options do I have?

Dropbox doesn't offer any sort of API for querying the status like this unfortunately. I'll send it along as a feature request.
