How to you find out the location of the “My DropBox” folder


The installation default for the Dropbox sync folder is [My documents]\My Dropbox. I recall that it is possible to choose other locations however. How can I find out at run-time from my D2006 app where the user has placed his/her Dropbox folder?

C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Dropbox\host.db
