This has been working great for about a year now. However, It seems that this solution means that it uses 2x the amount of harddrive space! This is not longterm sustainable, as the amount of projects in my dropbox grows.
Is there a way to remove the ‘/home/emil/Dropbox (CBS)’ path and only keep the sensible path? Or is there a way of mounting it that does not double the amount of space used? Of course, I could symlink instead, but I’m afraid that might introduce unwanted issues.
@Aragorn & @Mirdarthos : I don’t think you’re right - see here, when I use baobab to calculate disk space, the amount of used space adds up when I include both Dropbox and the mounted Dropbox (CBS) [ column 1 in the spreadsheet], but it does not when I exclude one of them [column 2]. This can only be explained by both folders taking up space, right? Or am I missing something?
There has been a lot of discussion about symbolic links and hardlinks on the dropbox forums, like here. I couldn’t find anyone that had been using a symlink like in my use case for years and could vouch for it, so mounting it seemed like the safest option (can’t find the thread for that, this was 1 year ago and can’t remember which forum)
