Administratively set the Dropbox folder location

Administratively set the Dropbox folder location

We need some way to set the dropbox folder location to something other than C:\users\username\Dropbox for all of our users. This can be via a gpo, a command line, the full installer, or even a registry key. Having each user go in and manually change their dropbox location after setup isn't a viable option.

Good idea. We manually change locations of all our root folders to C:\Dropbox. This enables us to easily share links direct to folders amongst internal staff simply by creating a hyperlink that looks like C:\Dropbox\Folder 1\Folder 2....etc. Means that link works on everyone's PC regardless of where they are.

Looking into it!

 

Thanks for the idea, I'll loop back with an update when I have one.

We do the same as HGSRWF and it would be great if we could make this the default
