Auto upload if files are saved to certain harddrive folders?

Level 2

Is there a way I can have Dropbox auto upload to Dropbox when I save to certain filefolders on my home desktop?  I only want business files I'll need to access on my laptop to be updated to Dropbox.   But I don't want to have to remember to take an extra step to upload to Dropbox--I sometimes don't anticipate needing a certain file.  And I don't want my whole desktop at home on Dropbox.  I want Dropbox to recognize that if I save a file to a certain filefolder at home--example "Customer Info"--I want it to automatically upload to the new file to the that folder.
