How to get Dropbox to run outside of a roaming profile on Windows 7

1 - Create an appropriate directory on the C: drive to contain the Dropbox executable files:

md  "C:\Program Files (x86)\DropBox"

2 - Make a file junction to redirect the directory that Dropbox will create in your roaming profile, to the directory that you just created on the C: drive.:

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming> mklink  /J  DropBox  "C:\Program Files (x86)\DropBox"

2 - Execute a silent install of the Dropbox installer and set the installation path to the above directory:

Dropbox X.X.X.exe   /S   /D=C:\Program Files (x86)\Dropbox

3 - Sign in to your Dropbox account and enjoy.

Please help support this charity fund raising effort:

16 year old Christopher Ting is trying to raise money for the charity that supports the Birmingham Children’s Hospital – the hospital that gave him a new heart valve and looked after him for the last 6 years. He has released an album of some of the music that he has written and recorded, and will be donating the proceeds that he gets from the publishers to the charity.

You can help in the following ways: 

  1. You can go to  and "like"  or "share" the page. 
  2. You can buy a CD from one of the links below, 
  3. Or even better, you can download the album which is cheaper and the charity gets more of the money.

If you are not sure whether you will like the music that's written by a 16 year-old, just go to the download link below and you can listen to the entire album for free, and you can even buy individual tracks for less than US$1, if that is what you would like to contribute.

So go on people, show us how generous you are!

The album can be downloaded from here:

The CD can be ordered from here:
