Download Entire Library

Download Entire Library

Due to SSD size constraints, I have some files saved locally and some online usine smart sync.  I finally have an external hard drive large enough for everything.  

 

Is there a way to download my ENTIRE online library to an external hard drive, or am I stuck transferring in small parcels?

 

Thanks!

Hi there @lefteye, it's good to hear from you again!

 

Since it sounds like you have the desktop app installed, you could move the Dropbox folder to the external hard drive. 

 

You can find the relevant steps on how to do this and some tips to keep in mind, here

 

Could you give that a try and let me know if it does the trick for you?

 

Cheers!
