So basically, I assign drobox file to save to Seagate storage device ( I have tried even small files 1meg ) so it’s not a space issue . My Dropbox has 1 TB storage of which I am using 3% and my Mac has 32Gig space so not sure the issue . But as per attachment keeps showing this message . I have also tried downloading file to my MAC downloads and then when I try drag file into Seagate device it won’t accept the file . So not sure what the issue is ? kenos saying failed insufficient permissions

Hey there @Markynwa - sorry to hear about this.  
 
Could you clarify whether you're copying or moving files to your Seagate drive or if you're just trying to move your Dropbox folder to this drive? What does the app state at the moment
 
While we're at it, can you send me a screenshot of the exact error message you get along with all the steps you take to do this so we can investigate further? 
 
Thanks!
 
PS: I don't know if you're familiar with this, but, Selective Sync is a feature that allows you to choose which folders to sync to a particular computer and i's a great option if you'd like to free up disk space. Should you need more info about it, please take a look at the following Help Center article:
