Nook and Dropbox......

Has anyone successfully merged the Nook for PC and Dropbox?  I would love to be able to add a document to my Nook for PC and then automatically have it sync with my other PC's so that when I go to another one, I still have the same content.  I know regular content from B&N syncs with Nook for PC, but don't think those .PDFs and .TXT files that I add there will.

 

I guess my question could be, "How do I change my default directory from 'c:\Docu[...]\My Documents\My Barnes & Noble eBooks' to something else?"  Or can I?

I don't remember how to do this on Windows, but in Linux you can create a Symbolic Link that is placed in the Dropbox folder and lets you sync items that are elswhere.  A Google search for "symbolic link Windows" may get something.

I know it's not a perfect solution if you're already using dropbox, but you could use SugarSync.  It does the same as dropbox only you can pick which folders to sync, you're not tied to the one.  You can also customize which folders sync with which machines, which is pretty nice.

Re: Nook and Dropbox......

Here's a link to a small application that may help.  

 

I use symlinks with a Linux computer and a Mac to sync files via Dropbox.  I haven't used Windows for a few years, but I was able to do it on XP.  Using them eliminates the need to relocate folders to the Dropbox folder.
