Re: dropbox folder


Hi @ngc2392; welcome to our Community and happy Monday!


I'm afraid you won't be able to share a folder that's outside your Dropbox folder on your computer and have it syncing live as our desktop app can only monitor files and folders within your Dropbox folder (to sync any changes). 


Please let me know if I'm missing something here.
