Auto sync desktop folder to Drop Box

Auto sync desktop folder to Drop Box

Hello!  I have a desktop folder that I want to auto sync with Drop Box for back up.  Is there a way?  The folder needs to remain on my hard drive, because a software program I am using cannot access Drop Box - only local folders.  Thanks!

Hey there @mgenuine,

You can download and install the Dropbox desktop app, which will create a local Dropbox folder on your computer. You'll be able to access your files locally and any changes you make within this folder will sync to your account and vice versa!

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions!
