Hey @george mouratidis; thanks for joining our Community and happy February!

You don't necessarily need to move any files in this case. Just install the app normally on your computer and when it starts syncing, pause it and move your Dropbox folder to your E drive through the app's preferences

Let us know if this helped!

hi again

backup started, ok.

I experience next problem.

Dropbox start to sync but after a new hours Dropbox stops and ask me to restart.

My files are 5.1million and 1.2TB so maybe this causes the problem to sync.

Is there any solution for this?

Thank you for support

With this amount of files, I'd suggest using selective sync to lessen the app's load, George. 

Let me know if this helped improve matters!
