I am using dropbox for business and need to add additional local storage to continue to maintain one local copy of all files in dropbox. My current system only has 1TB of storage and is running out due to a large number of photos in our business.
I am considering adding a NAS to one computer to keep all files local. Users on other computers/devises will typically keep most files online and some local.
What NAS or other storage solutions to keep all files local on one machine do you suggest?
If your computer's hard drive's space is not enough to fit your Dropbox folder, I'd first consider using selective sync to unsync some un-used folders as this would help free up space on your hard drive by completely removing some folders from your computer (you'll still be able to access those from our website).
Keep in mind that NAS (or other network storage devices) are not recommended since they do not send messages when files change. When Dropbox first starts it will do a deep file scan and will detect changes and sync them. However, during normal operation, Dropbox waits for "file update events" and only physically connected drives send these events.
I hope this helps and please keep me posted on your progress Laura!
