Hi @tooclimb, thanks for posting today!

Are you referring to creating a folder on your Dropbox account via the mobile app, or a folder on your device?

Are you trying to move the mobile app to an SD card on your device?

This will help me to assist further!

Thanks for your reply Jay

I have the drop box app on my tablet and yes, I'm referring to creating a folder on the Tablet. A folder of my choosing preferably on the external storage of the Galaxy Tab A, the SD card. I can create folders on the tablet but I cant direct drop box to a particular folder / path on the tablet.

The Dropbox mobile app doesn't sync to your phone like it does on a desktop machine.

The app itself is primarily for uploading, downloading and previewing files directly. As such, there isn't a folder that can be created anywhere on your device.

Additionally, the app itself can't be installed on an SD card, only on the internal storage.
