Dropboxer advice

New member | Level 2

I have tried to make sense of what Dropboxer Jane has recommended to back-up files from Dropbox to an external hard-drive and it's simply impossible. The writing is convoluted, imprecise, confusing, and in bad grammar… Can we get instructions from someone who can be objective and clear, please?

It would help if you could give us a clue as to where she has posted it? 


What I would say, however, is there is no automated way of doing this with Dropbox.... so its a case of you manually copying the files from your computer and pasting them to the other directory.
