What if you mapped the external drive and gave it a drive letter. I have two HDD on my computer. My storage drive has its own drive letter and that is where my Dropbox is. If your external drive is left plugged in and keeps the same drive letter, if you already have Dropbox installed, you could open properties>shortcut>Target and change the target to a folder on the external.
I haven't tried this to test. But in theory I believe it would work because I was able to put my Dropbox folder on my second hard drive.

Second internal ones work.
External dont and networked usually won't.
The issue is data loss. If the network letter isn't available when Dropbox connects, or, changes, or, drops off then Dropbox can see this as a mass-deletion and wipe your data. When the drive reconnects it does the same again.
