Sync subset of library to dropbox folder

My whole calibre library would put me over my free Dropbox limit and I usually only ever want a select group of books I've marked as prioritized to be synced into my Dropbox so I can save it locally to my phone. Syncing only this subset also makes picking books I want easier on the phone because I can't sort/filter in the Dropbox app like I can in Calibre so I don't want my non-prioritized books there at all.

I can manually switch the virtual library and manually copy those to a new library and manually redo this every time something changes but I'd prefer an automated way.

One way I could see a plugin doing this is to grab the books from Calibre based on user's criteria, then create a folder of symlinks to each of those books in the Dropbox folder (thus data never needs to get duplicated). Would this work?

How does one find the 'Connect to Folder' feature? My ebook folder on DropBox is 8Gb and adding it to Calibre library it duplicates all the files on DropBox and takes up a further 8Gb. This takes me over my DropBox limit of space.

Connect to folder should be on the Toolbar.
NOTE: This IS a 'device'. that you can send books to.
It does NOT auto eject upon closing of Calibre. You must EJECT if you do not want it to connect upon start (or if you want to attach another device)
It does NOT sync on its own

That is where it is Launched.
Once connected, the Folder device shows.
