How to backup Messenger emoticons to Dropbox

This works for Windows Vista and Windows 7. It creates a backup of all the Windows Live Messenger (or MSN Messenger) emoticons and display pictures to your Dropbox folder.

[code lang=”bash”]mklink /D C:UsersKahWeeDocumentsDropboxFolderSettingsObjectStore
C:UsersKahWeeAppDataLocalMicrosoftMessengerObjectStore[/code]

Note the syntax, unless your name is “KahWee”, your user directory is likely different. This updates Dropbox should there be any change to your ObjectStore folder.

Using this method you can also sync folders that are not within the Dropbox folder.
