Hey @frilanders, thanks for checking in with us. 

If you want to have your files locally on your computer, you can install our desktop app, which will create a a Dropbox folder with your account's content once synced. 

From there, there's not much I can offer on how to copy your files to Time Machine, although I'd recommend checking this article and this one, where users have discussed using the Dropbox desktop app and Time Machine.  

In any case, I'll leave this thread open for any other users who have any suggestions on how to do this. 

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to give me a nudge. Thanks!
