Friends, about the risk of losing data if an external drive, where is the Dropbox folder, becomes inaccessible, what do you think, to avoid this risk, to include the external drive in the Time Machine backups (Mac)? In case of this type of problem, we could restore a yesterday backup, no?
Dear Yuiko, thanks. My doubt about moving the dropbox folder to an external drive is due to the following post, which I read from Internet. I am preocupied with the risk of losing data ... Please, see: "
One of the most important things to always keep in mind when making such a move is: 1) The Dropbox folder must always be available when your computer boots and before the Dropbox desktop app starts up; 2)Some external drives take some time to mount before your computer recognizes them, and the Dropbox desktop app could start running before the external drive is ready; 3) This would lead to a potential error and Dropbox will get confused; 4) If the external drive is disconnected from the computer while the Dropbox app is running, there's could be potential risk, such as the app starting to delete files."
