@DropboxTeam: any fix without hacking windows in sight ?
Maybe that's my only option. Make a virtual drive and make everyone in the company move their dropbox location to that.
That's really the best solution, or just move everyone's Dropbox folder to C:\Dropbox and forget the virtual drive letter.

We use dropbox (for business) as a storage for textures, labels, etc. for rendering. Problem is that not everyone has dropbox on the same location on their computers. For example one person could have their dropbox on: "F:\Dropbox\" another person on "C:\Docs\Cloud\Dropbox", etc.
Our rendering software that uses those textures and labels stores full paths for textures/labels. This means that if you are using an image that is (for simplicity sake) stored on "F:\Dropbox\Client22\Project01\Renders\Assets\image01.png", that path is going to be different for other people with their dropbox on C: drive or whatever.
Obvious way to solve this is to map everyones dropbox folder to a virtual drive, lets say X:
This means that (using the example above), the image is accessible through "X:\Client22\Project01\Renders\Assets\image01.png". Which means that no matter on which computer the rendering software is used, it always finds the correct image, because this path works, no matter on what computer you are.
Now after everyone has this new X: drive on their computers, I don't want them using the normal link to dropbox, because if they do, and then save an image there which they then use while rendering, the whole "X virtual drive" system fails.
I'm not moving any folders. I'm just making a virtual drive X: which points to the real location of dropbox on each computer (which is different in many cases, and it needs to be different because of other software/links in documents, etc.).
