Is this some kind of a joke? I keep my dropbox folder on a separate partition to simply redirect the dropbox daemon to that location and not have to go through the whole download process all over again. Now, after a fresh install of Fedora 21, installing this new version of dropbox prevents me from pointing it to the previously installed location stating 'This folder already contains a Dropbox directory.'.... THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED NOW!
What's the sketch with this? I needed to uninstall and reinstall dropbox but now I cannot use it because it wants to download all my files again to a new location (300gb worth). I need to be able to point the new installation to it's previous location. This is an urgent issue.
The link to v2.10.52 below does not contain a setup.exe file.
Hello. Thanks for the note Nathaniel - I was a bit out of my depth opening that then!!
My fix for this for anyone else coming across this was to copy both my dropboxes into a new folder, re-install dropbox, and then copy all my files back into the specified dropbox folders again. Didn't take too long and all synced up nicely again now.
I also have the same problem. I have Dropbox 3.05 and use Windows 7 Professional.
I renamed the original folder to DropboxOld and used the same process to begin the move. I planned to pause it as soon as it started, delete the new folder created by the application, and rename DropboxOld to Dropbox, but it has been stuck at "Moving Dropbox..." for a few minutes and when I look at the destination, it didn't even create a new Dropbox folder to begin copying files into.
The website is also remarkably inflexible. When I go to the download page, I only can download version 3.05 - not any older versions and not the 3.1.274 development version, which I need to use a search engine to find on another website.
