Fixing Dropbox changed path
On one computer, I have my Dropbox folder located in C:/Users/Mathijs/Dropbox/. On an older pc I have it located in C:/Users/Mathijs/My Dropbox/. Not that big a deal, but having Java projects in my Dropbox folder with classpaths pointing to libraries in the Dropbox folder (and without changing ‘em to relative paths, like I should), here’s an easy solution:
On the old pc, open a command prompt and cd to C:/Users/yourusername. Then type:
mklink /J Dropbox "My Dropbox"
This’ll create a directory junction named ‘Dropbox’ pointing to ‘My Dropbox’. Now you can always use the path to Dropbox/, on both computers.
I’m sure this’ll be useful for other projects than Java programming stuff too.
