I had a Dropbox folder setup for one of my Ubuntu user accounts.
I had to move the folder elsewhere, temporarily as I had to delete the user account and then recreate it, due to an entirely separate problem, not Dropbox related.
I then moved the Dropbox folder back to the a location in the recreated user account folder, to path /home/user/Dropbox
Then I ran the Dropbox setup and pointed it to this folder.
2 Questions about syncing a restored folder:
Given that the contents of /home/user/Dropbox are the same as online, will syncing be minimal?
The folder contains shared folders not originally setup by me so would my local copy overwrite these?
