Re: Sync copy of file to two folders (one shared, one not) within single Dropbox folder

Sync copy of file to two folders (one shared, one not) within single Dropbox folder

Helpful | Level 5

Can I sync a file between two different subfolders in the same Dropbox folder on the same computer? (Want all files in my unshared folders but synced copies of some of the same files also in a shared folder that syncs whenever file saved.)

Not natively with Dropbox, no, you cant. Sorry

However, you maybe able to find something at Zapier.com to do it for you.

Thanks, Mark. Would seem to be something users would want- keep your file structure but have selected files also bundled into a shared folder, rather than separately sharing individual files.

Yes, I agree 100% with your idea...."keep your file structure but have selected files also bundled into a shared folder, rather than separately sharing individual files."

I was hoping to find the same answer you were. I agree it is crazy that this can not be done! Hopefully it is something on their update list to be done! We can hope and keep our fingers croxxed!
