I want to create a backup of a single .tex file. I created the hard link to the file (which is not in Dropbox directory, lets say it is A) inside Dropbox directory. I did this so because I do not want to backup other auxiliary file created (eg. axu, .log, .bbl etc.) when compiling the tex file. I edit and compile the tex file in A. The changes are reflected when I see the file inside Dropbox directory. But its is not synced with the online folder. However, If I change the file (hard link) inside the Dropbox directory, it gets synced.
Please let me know what is the problem here. Please give the solution within what I am using and trying to do rather than proposing alternative solution for same task.
I am using Fedora 13.
