Dropboxifier Syncs Game & App Data Between PCs Through Dropbox

If you use Steam to play a Steam powered game, you must have an idea of how the Steam cloud works. It does not matter which computer you use to sign in to your account, all your data will be saved in the cloud and synced across all the configured computers, whenever you log in to your Steam account. It actually works just like Dropbox, doesn’t it? The major difference between the Dropbox and Steam cloud service is that Dropbox only syncs your files and folders between all configured devices, while Steam syncs the game data and enables the system to read and write data to the sync location. Dropboxifier is an open source application for Windows that lets you create a symbolic link in order to place the game and application data in your Dropbox storage, allowing you to directly save and access applications/games data without having to manually move the files to the Dropbox folder. It basically tricks applications into reading and writing data directly to the specified Dropbox folder. Other than Dropbox, Dropboxifier also works with other cloud storage services such as SkyDrive, Google Drive etc. Read past the jump for details.

Since Dropboxifier uses the online storage account to save data, it means that a single location is used by the same application running on more than one computer to read and write the data. So, whenever you use an application that synced by Dropboxifier, you will be able to use the same profile preferences on every computer. This allows users to have the same experience on multiple PC’s for applications such as browsers, games, task managers etc.
Adding an application or game to Dropboxifier is very easy. Just enter a name the new folder to be created inside the Dropbox folder, enter the source path of the required application or game, and click Dropboxify.

Upon click, it will create folders in Dropbox storage folder, and keep the specified folder’s content synced with Dropbox folder, so that you can use the application or game data on any Dropbox-configured device without having to change the save location.
Dropboxifier works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Window Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.


  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
