dropbox on multiple local hard drives

New member | Level 2

I am using dropbox on two local systems for multiple purposes. Some for shared client projects, some for basic storage and some for storing of current project files. It would be EXTREMELY helpful to be able to split my dropbox files between multiple local drives. is this currently possible or can it be made possible in a future version? Thank you.

Hey there @mattdeanfilms,

Currently it's not possible to split the Dropbox folder so it's located in multiple places on your hard drive(s). As you've expressed your interest in seeing this implemented in future Dropbox versions, I've passed along your feedback to our dev team for them to review.

Sorry that I couldn't be of more help here, but please do let me know if you have any other questions regarding this.

Have a great day - thanks!

Thank you Daphne, This would be an extremely helpful feature as we have multiple projects backed up in dropbox and each of those projects need to be on separate drives. Thank you so much for passing this on to the development team!!

Also - if this were available - we would purchase additional space on dropbox since we could increase our ability to diversify where each file goes.

This idea is going to need a bit more support.

We've updated the status to encourage more users to back you up!

This is essential given the move to SSDs and the resultingly smaller hard drive space on C.  Are there any 3rd party tools to use as a workaround, or other cloud services that can do this in the meantime?

Still wrapping my head around how this is still not possible in 2020...

I agree with those wanting to split their dropbox onto 2 drives within the same computer. I have an SSD drive and a regular hard drive. Currently my dropbox is on the SSD, but I want to add photos (500 gb) to Dropbox--no room on the SSD!

Google Drive has this function, to add additional HDD's or SDDs. Dropbox, please add a similar feature.
