Is it possible to backup external hard drives with the Advanced Business Plan?

Is it possible to backup external hard drives with the Advanced Business Plan?

Hi,

 

I have been thinking to upgrade to a paid account of Dropbox for a long time, but I haven't taken the step because it didn't meet all of my "demands". Those would be:

 

- Sync the whole computer

- Have an extra copy of all my external hard drives (around 6TB and growing).

 

But recently I found out that Dropbox can make backups of external hard drives (https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/external-drive)

 

This made think that now Dropbox could be a game changer for me. But it seems that the external hard drive backup is not available for tha Advanced Business Plan, is that so?

 

If not, is there a possibility to have a Plus account and add the extra storage for external drive backup?

 

Thank you,

 

marc

Hi @Marianillo, I'd be happy to answer this for you! 

You're right, the external hard drive backup feature isn't available on our Business plans at the moment. 

Unfortunately, our personal plans come with a specific amount of quota, and extra space can't be added to them.

If you have any other questions, let me know.
