I’ve been around the net and don’t have a good solution.
I need to rename the “Dropbox (Personal)” folder to something without spaces in the name.
What I did:
- Pause syncing
mv Dropbox\ \(Personal\) Dropbox
ln -s Dropbox Dropbox\ \(Personal\)
- Resume syncing
This seems to work fine as far as syncing, but I’ve lost the Dropbox menu when I right-click on files within either folder (Dropbox or Dropbox\ (Personal)). I really need this to prevent syncing a giant folder to my laptop.
Any better way to do this?
I’m open to other bullet-proof services that don’t have lame folder naming conventions and that allow selective sync.
