Syncing Issue To External Hard Drive

Syncing Issue To External Hard Drive

I started syncing some drop box folders to my hard drive but I got an error that it couldn't sync everything because I don't have enough space. I purchased an external hard drive and tried to move the folder over to it but it is only bringing over what was able to be synced to my hard drive and not everything that I have on Dropbox.com. How do I get everything off my dropbox.com to my external hard drive?

Hi @sierrafenton, thanks for messaging today!

Are you moving the Dropbox folder to your external drive directly via the Dropbox desktop application settings?

What does the app say when you hover over the icon,  'up to date', or does it say syncing?

This will help me to assist further!
