Dropbox Stops Symlinks

Dropbox sent me an email two days ago informing me that they no longer support symlink syncing outside of Dropbox. Basically, backing up dotfiles to dropbox is out of the question now, unless you’re going to place all your dotfiles in the dropbox folder and symlink back to it - which I’m not going to do.

Seeing as I also use Github for backing up my dotfiles, it isn’t that big of a deal, but I’m not going to keep using Dropbox if it no longer does what I really need it to do. So, I’ll be looking for a second backup service sometime soon (probably iCloud as I already pay for extra storage there).
