Dropbox and Symbolic Links

Sometime I want to synchronize my folder with Dropbox but I don’t want to put my files into C:\Users\[UserName]\Dropbox
Of course I can change Dropbox location to my folder but for me it is not enough.

So I ended up with idea to create symbolic link from my real folder and Dropbox folder.

It works as expected.

I did not like to create links manually so I found nice and simple drag-and-drop explorer extension Link Shell Extensions to perform the operation.
