Hi,

I have my files stored on a seperate drive and want to change the automatically selected folders "Desktop, Documehts and Downloads" to the folders on the second drive.

Can anyone help me?

You can't do that. Dropbox doesn't sync folders that are located outside of the Dropbox folder. The Desktop, Documents and Downlaods folders are the only exception, and even those are moved into the Dropbox folder so they can sync.

 

If you want other folders to be synced in Dropbox, you'll need to move them into the Dropbox folder.
