    There was a handy website that would allow you to easily symlink a folder outside of your Dropbox folder into your Dropbox folder with a few clicks, but I've since lost the name of the website since I've migrated to a new computer. If anyone could help me locate the name of this website I'd be greatly appreciative, thank you.

    If you right click on the folder and chose "services" at the bottom there is an option to create a symbolic link in there (unless that's something I installed but I don't think it is).

    Hope this helps.

    BTW this is on Snow Leopard 10.6.8

    Pretty sure I got this feature after installing "symbolic linker" (http://download.cnet.com/SymbolicLinker/3000-18487_4-33926.html?tag=mncol;1). Wish I'd done it sooner- made a bit of a mess in terminal when I put in another hard drive (snow leopard too)

    But I remember it being a website where you logged into Dropbox from it, selected the folder you wanted in Dropbox, and voilà it did it. I'd rather not download an application to do it.
