Can I sync folders that are not in my dropbox install folder yet?

I used to use SpiderOak, until the synchronisation function started serving up outdated copies of files and clobbering the new ones. Then I switched to Ubuntu One - it's the closest thing I've found to Dropbox that isn't actually Dropbox.

Wuala can do this too but it's Mac client is a bit rubbish at the moment (new beta on the way though). Windows is fine though and it comes in useful when syncing folders between PCs.

Especially if you have an old hotmail account lying around and get a free 25GB (don't know if that still works though)

well, I can't say I actually use the sharing features of dropbox much at all, but maybe this will give me a reason to.

@Platinum: it's not a perfect solution, but simply moving the actual files to a subdirectory of your dropbox folder and placing a shortcut to said folder where the files used to be might be worth considering. Symlinks in linux would do it very well, but windows might not like it.

I love Dropbox for my uni work! Plus I have 30gb for free because of the space race they did...

I use symlinks on windows to make other folders sync using dropbox and it hasn't caused any issues. I then have powershell script which I can run which I can run on a new machine to setup the symlink folders how I like them.
