Mac - Change save location of documents and desktop
Posted on 2014-10-03
Out company is planning on using Dropbox for sharing and also as a backup of sorts (I know not ideal) for desktops. On the PCs we are going to relocate the My Documents and desktop folders into the Dropbox folder which seems to be pretty easy, clean and basically transparent to the users.
We'd like to do the same thing with the Macs, but the only thing we can see is how to move the home folder which has its own issues. Is there any way to accomplish this same thing on the Macs without moving the home folder?
If I do end up needing to move the home folder, whats the best way to get the folder into the Dropbox folder and have it be clean for the users? i.e they keep all their settings and files.
