Creating a link to a file within our dropbox

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi. I have a file that could logically be stored in two separate folders. I want to store it in folder A, but have a link to the file in folder B. Both folders are within my dropbox.

How do I do this? Any help is apprreciated.

Thanks

Hey @LaurenFCA, that’s an interesting question; I'd happily follow-up! 
 
If you’d like to create the link on your account online, you could create a shortcut pointing to the original file. Can you check if that’s what you’ve been looking for? 
 
Keep me posted. Thanks!
