Dropbox and MS Onedrive

Dropbox and MS Onedrive

Dirk from Holland
Explorer | Level 3

Hi,

I have a (paid) dropbox file (name: XYZ with hundreds of subfiles). In this all important stuff is stalled. I use Dropbox as my first back-up.
For safety sakes, I have now also installed MS OneDrive. 
How can I put (copy) the XYZ file with all its subfiles in OneDrive and not disturb the XYZ Dropbox file?  So the XYZ file will be synchronized on both Dropbox and OneDrive?
Thanks
Dirk

Hi there @Dirk from Holland, I hope you're having a good day!

Due to conflicts in syncing, we highly recommend not to sync folders with multiple syncing services.

In this case, I could suggest looking at perhaps manually backing up the files by copying them from one service to another at regular intervals.

Another option would be to look into using a third party app that could help you achieve this.

Sorry that I can't be of much more help with this, but please let me know if you have any questions - thanks!
