I have a large 250GB Folder to upload to Dropbox. It is a series of backups run by a Windows Seagate backup tool.
I believe it contains a number of files at the lower level.
I tried Upload Folder from a browser which hangs the browser with no info (I subsequently see the recommendation to never upload large files through a browser). What is the max reasonable file size to upload with a browser and have good success??
Now if I use the Desktop App and the Sync process from the Dropbox Folder, does that mean I either have to move or make a copy of the file from its External Drive to the local Dropbox folder??
This always seems cumbersome to me as a I have an organization setup that I want to maintain and do not want to duplicate it.
I also want to have files upload and Sync as created or changed and not have to track them to move them to the Dropbox folder.
What is the best route?
Finally, can I run a Time Machine backup on a Mac OSX High Sierra 10.13.6 and direct it to Dropbox?
Or is there a better way to use Dropbox for my offsite emergency backup?
