Sharing subfolders of shared folder – dropbox

synappse dropbox share

Recently I came to a scenario when I had shared folder and wanted to share it with someone new – but not all of it, just one subfolder. Dropbox isn’t yet giving us good solution for this but we can do a little trick here and make it happen.

So the workaround is to create a symbolic link, you can do it either on widows and linux base systems. Go to the terminal and type:

For Windows

For Linux / OS X

After doing that just share newly created symbolic link with the person and you’re done.
