Warning when disconnecting external drive

Warning when disconnecting external drive

Good day. I hope this finds you well.
I know you recommend not using external had drives, but with newer machines with limited internal space and a 2 or 3 TB Dropbox account, the reality is that external drives are the only way to go.
So here is my suggestion:
When a Dropbox drive gets disconnected, Dropbox should ask: "Your filles will be deleted. Are you sure you want to delete your files?" Then give the user the option to say YES if they indeed want to delete the files or say NO and allow them to reconnect the drive without loss of files.
Thank you advance for your help.
