it is always hidden which will require "show all or hidden files " to be selected (depending on file browser), else in Core the file will be prefixed with .   (as in  " .filetool.lst ") and located in the OPT directory
;)

Your Dropbox 2G needs to be on permanent storage,  Then you can symlink it to $HOME/dropbox

At the expense of sounding a bit stupid. How would I do that?

You may feel more comfortable to use a graphical file manager for file operations - e.g. rox filer would allow you to middle-drag and drop a symbolic link.

You should not remove "home" from .filetool.lst, but add "home/tc/somedir" to .xfiletool.lst
