Can I have my Dropbox folder sync to iCloud as well?

Can I have my Dropbox folder sync to iCloud as well?

Hello,

 

I would like to have one of my Drop box folder (Business edition) save also on iCloud. 

In my company we have a "Private folder" on which we have some Information such as Pay Slips, Expense reports and so on. I would like this one to be synced with my icloud folder.

 

How can I do that?

 

Best regards

Not with Dropbox and not easily or without causing possible data loss I'm afraid.

You are going to have to manually copy and paste the data over between the two whenever you want to get the data between the two.

Olá,

 

Sim poderá efetivar a sicronização. Basta ir no site www.icloud.com entra no icone Icloud Drive e adicionar (icone carregar) a pasta do Dropbox  que será sicronizada. O computador onde estará a pasta a ser siconizada, deverá ter o icloud instalado.

Note the above can cause massive data loss and corruption as both tools will be trying to lock the data to sync it. It is STRONGLY recommended you do not do this. There are lots of posts on here from people who have lost stuff by doing that.

Creio que a perda de dados e corrupção, só ocorre quando não salva as alterações do arquivo.

No it isnt, its as I said that both iCloud and Dropbox will try and lock the file for syncing reasons as will the program you are using. All of those locks can cause issues.
