I am using a dropbox folder to develop from. However, Studio copies the media files to a local folder and works from there:

C:\Users\marvi\AppData\Local\AGKApps\Windows\[appname]\media

Is there a reason for this and how can I change this behaviour?

Hmm, seems to be just a runtime copy... It does also update dropbox.

If the running application writes files it will write them in the user folder. This will make sure if two different users run the application on the same system they don't have unintended interaction with each others files.
Also keeps the original media files safe.

I don't know what happens if you try to overwrite an original existing file. Probably the user file will have priority for that user.
