How to get Android 9 to point to dropbox directory from default file manager

New member | Level 2

I am trying to access my keepass .kdbx file from my dropbox but I can only see my local storage and my Google drive directories. Is there a way to get Dropbox to show in the default file manager?

Hello @deeznuts, hope you're well!

At the moment, the default file manager will only allow you to browse local files/folders and a connected Google Drive account. You would need to use a third-party app for file management to browse your Dropbox files.

You should be able to find some relevant apps from the Google Play store to allow you to browse your Dropbox files outside of the Dropbox mobile app. While I can't suggest any specific apps to use, you can do a quick web search to find some alternatives, or other users here might have some suggestions for you too.

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

Thanks!
