Migrating an entire dropbox to root (from under the root)

Helpful | Level 6

Currently, this is my folder structure: 

E:/dropbox/setupfiles

E:/dropbox/collaborations

 E: /videos

 E: /pictures 

  E: /foo

 Everything under dropbox is like 600GB. The entire E drive (including dropbox) is about 1.5TB

 

What I would LIKE to do is cut and paste all of the data from within the dropbox folder to the root, and then make my entire root the dropbox. I would LIKE to do this without having to reupload all of my files which are already in my dropbox.

The resultant structure would look like this:

E:/setupfiles

E:/collaborations

E:/videos

E:/pictures

E:/foo

 

with E: as the dropbox.

 

possible?

Simply put.... no, sorry.

Dropbox has to be in a folder. So it could all be inside E:\Dropbox but Dropbox wouldnt work being expected to manage every folder on the drive instead.
