When I use DB's interface (and do the drag and drop thing), there is no 'copy' choice; it moves whatever I'm dragging/dropping. But, immediately checking my account via web browser, the files are there. (As in really there--I've verified that by downloading some from another computer or phone.)

You don't link things there - it's a separate cloud service specifically for copying.
But 'make link' is one of the options within its interface (right-clicking on an item brings it up). And when I 'make link' and then drop the link into the DB directory, and then check online, the files are there. THERE there. (As above, I tested by downloading on a different device.)

Yes.

Make sure that the Dropbox daemon is running.
Yes, it definitely is. I'm looking at its cool little icon right now.

Confirm actions using the web interface to help debug.
That's what I've been doing, but for some reason I just have doubts.
