Existing External Recognition for backup

Existing External Recognition for backup

Kayla_Locke
New member | Level 2

I travel and work from multiple computers, plugging in my SSD to whichever I am working on. Dropbox does not recognize the previous SSD external backup since I'm on a different device, and will create an entire new SSD external backup because it's plugged into a different device. This is really unfortunate because it uses twice as much storage doing a double backup, rather than just updating the backup of that same drive that is already in my Dropbox. Would love to see a fix on this...
