New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi You have a similar question that someone is using a drive key.  I am using the sansdisk storage on a laptop with limited storage (SSD drive that can not be expanded)  so the sandisk drive is my only solution.   I am getting warnings that it isnt supported. 

Help!  Thanks!

Hey @JimOmni B., thanks for reaching out to our Community for assistance!
 
I’ll try to send the best available options to you & we’ll discuss the matter based on the feedback I’ll receive for you. Now, it’s my understanding that you’ve moved your files in Dropbox on an external hard drive Jim, is that right? 
 
If so, you may keep in mind that it would be best for you to choose a location on the same hard drive as your operating system, as Dropbox won't work correctly if the Dropbox folder becomes inaccessible, which can happen if it's located on.... So as to further advise on the matter, can you let me know a bit mot more info about how current setup? 
 
I’d also appreciate a screenshot (omitting personal info) of the message you’re getting in your next post here, so as to get a better idea of what’s happening.
 
Thanks again for posting us your question here & I’ll be awaiting your next reply here. Happy Monday!
