I want to mount a folder to another folder. My reasoning is: I have a free box.net account with 50GB, but it does not include versioning. So I would like to put the folder under git. But I do not want to sync the .git folder in the box folder itself to avoiud synching.

Git does not recognise links and alias as links and aliases and does version these as such, and not the folders underneath. But a mounted folder should be visible as a folder. So:
