Hi, I'm trying to connect my external hard drive so it gets backed up by dropbox.
When I plug in the drive I don't get a notification to upload it to dropbox. When I drag in the drive into the dropbox folder in the computer the hard drive icon has a little arrow next to it? does anyone knows what the arrow represents?
If I make the drive external only the icon changes to 0kb size, does that means the drive is not being backup up by dropbox then?
I'm assuming it makes sense to do it this way whereas the drive is backup by dropbox and online only right? or do I need to have the drive 'synced and local' in order for the backup to work? does that means now I have 2 copies of the drive:
2.dropbox folder in the computer 'synced and local'
Sorry, I understand dropbox is not an online backup system however I'm trying to make it work like it. Also if anyone has other suggestions on other online file management systems who can also do backups easily and hassle free please do let me know.
I have heard of things like 'boxifier' but trying to keep costs to a single platform. thanks
