If you would like to automatically upload your Desktop, Documents and Downloads automatically to your Dropbox from your Mac, follow this nice little trick:

I will be using the “Documents” folder as an example:

Open Terminal (Spotlight/Terminal)

Change directory to your Dropbox folder (by default it is in the users home directory)

Change to Dropbox Directory

Create the symbolic link from your users Documents folder to Dropbox

ln -s ~/Documents

(Mine already exists)

Link Documents to Dropbox

Repeat for any other folders you want to back up automatically to Dropbox.
