Windows 7: Folder too big for the hard drive, use another HDD for same folder?

Folder too big for the hard drive, use another HDD for same folder?

My Dropbox folder is huge and soon there will be no space left on the hard drive. I have many Adobe creative programs which projects have links to the Dropbox folder, so if i just move the dropbox folder to another hard drive, it will be a hell fixing all the missing file errors.
Is there an option to use another HDD for the dropbox folder but in the way that Windows will still think that it is on the same location it was before?
