i want my folders to my automatically backed up with dropbox but i want to keep my folders where they are on my desktop computer. I don't want to have to move them into the dropbox folder on my desktop. whenever i try to synx folders with dropbox i have to move them out of the current path that they are in. i don't want that. i just want to tell dropbox what folders to sync and where they are on my computer.
You can sync some paths, such as “Desktop”, “Documents” and “Downloads” to Dropbox, using the Computer Backup feature. Any changes you make to those folders on your computer or in Dropbox will continuously mirror to both.
