Hi Guys - This really helped me. I think I understand German just well enough to see what you did here.

Assuming Xammp installed at C:\xampp and Dropbox folder is C:\dropbox\ on Windows

COPY C:\xampp\htdocs to C:\dropbox\xampp\htdocs

EDIT C:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf as follows:

Change DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs" to DocumentRoot "C:/dropbox/xampp/htdocs" (Note: Must be forward slashes as per Unix not back slashes as per Windows)

COPY C:\xampp\mysql/data to C:\dropbox\xampp\mysql_data (Make sure everything in the folder is copied)

EDIT C:\xampp\mysql\bin\my.ini as follows:

datadir = "C:/dropbox/xampp/mysql_data"
innodb_data_home_dir = "C:/dropbox/xampp/mysql_data"
innodb_log_group_home_dir = "C:/dropbox/xampp/mysql_data"

Is this correct?
