Dropbox no longer see the folder on symlink (vin7)?

Anyone encountered this? One of the Dropbox folders on one computer should be on a different partition, so I used Symbolic link. 354ffd0b5efc3004f89046bd57e86335.jpg


Everything worked, but after February 17, stopped sync from that folder (I modified\created files the symbol is green, as if they were already updated), and on the contrary loading it works.


Wrote to support, no response yet.


Maybe there are some other ways to do to one folder on one partition and the rest on another?

It is unclear how it worked until February 17th. As far as I know Dropbox does not monitor changes of files in a folder the link.
I do the opposite — put the files in Dropbox, and from Dropbox folder do Junction where I need to go.
That is, the files are physically on the same drive\partition? I on the contrary it is necessary that some files have been physically on the same drive, some on another. - randal.Bergnaum78 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:49

It doesn't work. Dropbox is not able to track changes in symlinked, here's just some invincible mechanism of Windows — nothing helped. AndreyNagih rightly says: we need the folders must physically be in the Dropbox folder, and place the "original" must be hardlink. My work "My documents" and a couple of folders. There are tools, but better hands. Look here manual.
Strange invincible mechanism, approximately September to 17 February, all worked fine on symlink. - randal.Bergnaum78 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:51
