Launch Dropbox when External Drive Connected

New member | Level 2

Hi, I don't think this is possible yet but it would be really helpful if dropbox could launch when an external drive is connected. I have dropbox linked to my external drive on my laptop and I quit dropbox before I disconnect the drive, but when I re-connect it I often forget to launch dropbox and therefore it isn't syncing. I was hoping it would be possible for dropbox to know when you are connecting your Dropbox linked drive and just launch it! And even better would be for dropox to automatically quit when you disconnect the drive(so there are no errors when dropbox can't sync anymore).

Thank you!

Hi there @AJ504, thanks for reaching out to us and for your feedback!

Having the Dropbox folder on an external hard drive requires care as syncing issues can arise, but it sounds like you're using it as you should. 

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us and don't hesitate to give us a shout if you have any other questions or comments. Cheers!
