is it possible to reuse old dropbox links, which are already on print or digital material?

hi there,

 

i use dropbox links as external reference points on print & digital media, by right clicking mouse, pathway to copy board, & paste.

 

previously i checked if a deleted file, with the same name & composition, thrown in the same dropbox folder, would still work when a person from another computer would type the pathway in his or her browser - which it did, but apparently, this is no longer so.

if i move the above file from its current location in dropbox, and add the same file into the same location, the above pathway does no longer work. i would then have to right click mouse, add another pathway to my copy/paste board, and paste the new pathway.

 

this is unfortunate, since i use dropbox pathways as external reference points on digital as well as print media. 

 

i would therefore be interested in a function, whereby existing pathways can be re-used for update of material.

 

of course this will only work, if pathways already generated, can only be re-used by the same dropbox account,

 

so external competing actors, can't begin to wash their dirty laundry, by hacking pathways already published -

 

but will you consider to add this reverse pathway function, so our print & digital dropbox links may stay fresh?

 

best regards,
