How to remove symbolic links?

Sep 6, 2015 at 8:52 PM
When I fire up the program it doesn't display any links that have been created. I need to undo the two links I created because it broke the paths in Adobe Lightroom.

How can I remove the symbolic links if I can't see them in Dropboxifier? Can I edit the XML or some other way?

Sorry you're having this problem. It sounds like Dropboxifier lost the path to your DropboxifierLinks.xml file. Make sure that the "Dropbox folder" points to a folder with the correct DropboxifierLinks.xml file in it.

If you are still unable to get the links to display in Dropboxifier, you can undo links manually:
  • Locate the location of the actual data that you created a link to. In this case your Abobe Lightroom files. These should be on Dropbox if you had previously linked them there. Make a backup of these just to be safe.
  • Go to the directory you created symbolic link for. You should see them in Windows Explorer as folders with little arrows on them, similar to a shortcut icon. You can delete those as if they were normal folders.
  • Copy the contents of the actual Lightroom files back to where the symbolics links were.
  • Test to see if that worked.
