for legal reasons I would like to know where are my files physically located. Are they in the US?
I need to know that because I use Dropbox for my work, too, and I store many data of my customers.
No need to move your data. Even with the DPA (and the new GDPR) your data can still be held by DropBox, as this would come under the 'Privacy Shield' (in place to give clear guidance around data protection requirements). Privacy Shield replaces the previous 'Safe Harbour'.
The new EU GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018 so there's plenty of time to get everything in line, so I wouldn't worry about the servers being in the US (of course this is dependent on the type of data you're holding).
Hope this is helpful. I can be found on LinkedIn if you need anything else

Hope this works for you.
@lycra - thanks for that. So basically its actually Enterprise users who can request offshore servers.
