DropBox installer app only gives option to sync with my C drive... not enough space. I need it to install/sync on D instead. WTF? https://9apps.ooo/

Hello,   PacoBelan

Thanks for posting here in the Community.  Sorry, you are not able to transfer to another Drive.

 

More info here: https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/desktop/move-dropbox-folder 

basically, Dropbox needs to be able to sync properly.  With all the new changes on OS, it's getting a challenge

to get notifications of all changes made to the filesystem.  The Help Center article I linked above explains whats recommended

I do not see any way to instal dropbox onto a drive tother than "c" initially. As my c drive does not have eenough space for my dropbox files I need to instal it elsewhere... surely this is possible? I cannot instal on c and then move... does anybody get this?

Hello logfather

Sorry, it is not possible, it needs to be on the c: where the application is installed on.  If you have a lot of files inside your Dropbox folder, you might consider Selective Sync.
