  1. Add symlink folder to Dropbox on OS X

    September 4, 2013 by The Man

    Sometimes folders need to live outside your Dropbox folder so simply symlink them.

    1. Open Terminal and cd to your Dropbox folder

    2. type  ln -s /folder/anotherfolder


  2. Get rid of the dock icon for Skydrive on OS X

    Why this wasn’t the default is beyond me but….

    defaults write /Applications/ LSUIElement 1

    Also it’s a long way off Dropbox functionality, thank god for the 25Gb

  3. Wake on Lan for iPhone/iPod Touch now with Dropbox support

    February 14, 2011 by The Man

    The next version of Wake on Lan for iOS will include the ability to upload and download the bookmarks database to Dropbox

    This will make it easy to backup the database and transfer it to other iOS devices, OS X and in the future Android and other devices.
