How to Transfer Dropbox to D Drive of new computer

How to Transfer Dropbox to D Drive of new computer

I have been using dropbox for a long time and have Dropbox+ 2TB account.   I have a new computer and installed the new Dropbox folder on my C drive instead of my D drive. How do I move dropbox totally to my D drive without messing up any of my data files?

Use the option in Dropbox Preferences to relocate the folder to another location. I would highly suggest NOT storing the Dropbox folder on an external or removable drive. Under the right conditions, data loss can occur.

Thank you. I was able to copy my Dropbox files over to my new computer. I was also able to back my files.
