Dropbox Directory

Recommended Posts


I looked for awhile on the forums and Google in general, and I couldn't find any code that returned the path to the base dropbox folder, so I wrote this small snippet. I hope this helps someone! Now, all my computers and virtual machines can run easily easily by referring to it as simply DropboxFolder().

This small script REQUIRES the installation of a base64 decoder. Here's the one I use, written by Ward:
