I have Dropbox installed on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS and there are two separate folders that are being synchronized so there is some waste of disk space.
I would like to have only one Dropbox folder to be synchronized and would like to see a link to this particular folder both on Windows and Ubuntu desktops.
The problem is that my original Dropbox folder (the larger and complete one) is on a separate partition that is not mounted by Ubuntu at startup. How can I have this partition automatically mounted without me interfering ?
Furthermore, if the Dropbox folder on Ubuntu is deleted will it be reflected to my Dropbox account and the online synchronized files? How could this be prevented? I would like to get help on this matter.
