Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
Under the "Backup" option in the dropbox app for Windows, currently theres an option to back up certain folders, such as Desktop, Music ... and so on.
I want an option to add custom folder to back up.
Reason. My setup is
At D:\Data I have my personal folders and files
At D:\Dropbox\Data I have my personal folders and files, that is beeing sync. to my Dropbox online
I want this option under 'Backup' to be "Add custom folders" so I can backup D:\Data to D:\Dropbox\Data
This idea will need more support before we can share your suggestion with our team @knudkp
I just updated the status to encourage other users to back you up!
This sounds like a great idea!
Sounds like a great idea!
Yup! Just asked support for how to do this and found out it wasn't an option. Hopefully it's relayed to the engineering department asap!
I, too, would love this feature.
Thank you for your idea, while we can’t take every idea forward we do regularly re-review and will update you if anything changes!
I've voted for this.
I think that not having the ability to add custom folders to the backup feature is limiting. I have multiple disk drives with important files spread across them. The only way I can back these up is by doing my own local backup of these locations to a single drive, and it's that drive/subfolders that I have to then backup again to a remote location. I do this with the general sync functionality, but it goes against the way my mind works to do it this way - feels like a messy workaround, and takes up twice the amount of local storage 😄
