However, if you go to Dropbox.com and check the "Boxifier" folder, you should see that there is no shortcut there, but there are the files and folders from the folders that Boxifier is syncing. For more details on this, we invite you to read this article.
The basic edition of Boxifier is free. It supports syncing one local folder outside of Dropbox. If you need to sync more folders or folders from USB/external/removable drives or network drives you can upgrade to a premium edition.
