Seems like Dropbox have removed the one most useful feature of DropBox; it is now 99% useless. Who the hell wants to reverse the symlinks. We all have file structures outside the dropbox maybe over multiple drives, which we have used for years, so are never going to change that. This is a crazy decision. Go back to the otiginal method ort I'm done with Dropbox !!

Totally agree. It makes no sense and takes out a lot of value of the solution. Leaving Dropbox now, moving to Google Drive.

To put it mildly this is a deal breaking feature retraction (you call it side effect we call it feature). 

Dropbox have become useless for me thanks to this. Please work hard and re enable this. I wish you good luck with all my heart in doing so.

Wow, I can't believe this has been removed. I use it for a large number of my files, only to find that (silently) this feature was taken away and that files I thought were backing up haven't been doing so for months! I'm lucky I caught this issue out.

 

I'm strongly considering moving to Google Drive as well. I spend far too much on Dropbox to have issues like this constantly popping up.
