Backup will never complete

Backup will never complete

JamesW
Explorer | Level 3

I am using Backup for a Seagate Hard Drive that I download file changes to weekly. So far all of the File Folders and Sub Folders are the but only 75% of the folders have content in them. This Drive has been connected for 6 days so it should be complete.

 

Sometimes it tells me to plug in a drive that is already plugged in so not sure what is going on there.

 

I am using this as a test to see if I want to subscribe to Dropbox Business, but so far I would call it a fail.

According to the Dropbox site, what is the current status of the external drive backup?

Hi @JamesW, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Could you check you've removed the limit on the upload bandwidth in the Dropbox desktop application?

 

Keep me updated with any progress!
