Dropbox Windows client limitations

Gabriel S. New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello,

I would like to confirm the following Dropbox limitations:

* It is not possible to specify a root folder other than C:\Dropbox
* It is not possible to rename the root folder to anything other than C:\Dropbox
* As of November 2019 the Dropbox client for windows will not follow Windows junction points and will not sync the files or folders they link to.

Please confirm all these limitations are correct.

Also, please advise if it is a possible to receive a partial refund if I wish to cancel my current Dropbox plan.

Thanks.

Yes those are all correct I'm afraid @Gabriel S. - they've always been correct unless you did things unsupported to make them work. All Dropbox has done is start enforcing what the software should have done anyway - and stopped unsupported hacks/tricks/workarounds. 

And no, I'm afraid partial refunds are not available as per T&Cs
