Mirror/Symlink Two Macbook Pro Desktop

Mirror/Symlink Two Macbook Pro Desktop

Explorer | Level 3

How can I get Dropbox to mirror / sync or symlink both of my MacBooks Desktop, Documents, Music and Download folders so when I modify a file on one computer desktop it will update on the other computer desktop. Both computers are currently backed up to dropbox and have two separate Desktop, Document, Music and Download folders. When I edits file on my 15" MacBook desktop it update within dropbox but not on my 13" MacBook desktop. What I need is both computer having mirrored item like iCloud. I Chat with two dropbox reps on Friday and issues was not fixed. Need help anyone thanks.

Hey @John-T; welcome to our Community and thanks for using our computer backup feature!

I'm afraid there's no way to achieve this with Dropbox at this time, but you can post your idea in the relevant section of our Community so that other users can up-vote it to show their interest. 

I hope this clears things up and let us know if you have anything else to add or ask, John.
