I have a mac and I do not have enough space to unload all of my dropbox items onto it. I bought a 1tb external drive hoping I can use that as the destination but it is not allowing it that way. I do have over 30k items downloaded to my mac so if I move those and delete them, will it sync where it left off or start over (if that is my only option)? Was hoping for something quick and painless and it is taking some time as I have never done this.
Appreciate any help.
Thank you for reaching out. Hope my response below helps:
- These are downloading to my Mac's internal SSD and I do not have enough space
- I bought an external SSD in hopes I can make the the drive they would sync to, but it is not allowing me to do that
- I want to make sure I don't lose anything and hope there is a quick way to just bypass my Mac SSD and goes right into the external SSD I bought
I hope that answers
I am having the same issue - however the support page you linked to says to:
How to move your Dropbox folder
But my Sync tab, nor any other tab have "Move" or "Dropbox Location" as an option. This used to be something I could find easily. It seems to be missing from some recent update.
Thank you. I removed the sync to my internal harddrive on the Mac and it is now removing them all off the laptop. However, when I try and use my SanDisk Extreme SSD as the location, I get the following message:
To sync your Dropbox, move your Dropbox folder to a partition with a compatible File System. Dropbox is compatible with HFS+ or APFS.
I am not sure how to get around this protion?
