    I'm testing out the icloud drive, and I wanted to move my dropbox folder to the drive so I don't have to change any of the existing shortcuts that I have. However, if I name a folder "Dropbox" it won't sync in icloud drive. Seems that this is intentional rather than a bug, a strange design decision...

    thats weird. what id do is make a new folder name it something else and bac up the contents to it. then on another system copy it back to the right folde. a little more hassle but it would work.
