It's probably a redirect.  The URL is virtual.  Everything on my local 
machine in DropBox exists within a directory structure that is partially 
defined by DropBox and partially defined by me.  I doubt very much that 
my directory structure is replicated on a Dropbox server.  Much more 
likely that it's stored in a database and when Dropbox gets a request, 
(the public link), it puts my data in a temporary space and redirects 
the browser to that space.  Physical space is still more expensive than 
processor power.
