    Anyone know how I can setup a smart folder to always copy the files and folders of another folder into it? For example, if I have a folder named Books, I would like to create a smart folder that will always copy all the content in Books within it. The idea is I can place that smart folder in my dropbox and dropbox will always have all the books I add into itunes synced up (I don't want to use dropbox but this gives you an idea of what I am trying to do).

    Smart Folders aren't actually folders. They're just saved searches. I don't know how Dropbox would even handle them, since to Dropbox they'd probably just appear to be a single file. You'd be better off with a Folder Action or a script set to run at intervals to copy the files into a folder on the Dropbox.
