Lacie HDD with Dropbox

Lacie HDD with Dropbox

New member | Level 2

Hello, 

 

I recently purchased a Lacie 5tb HDD and would like to have it sync with all the files in my Dropbox.  What is the step-by-step procedure for doing this?  Also, can Dropbox's Vault be copied over to the external hard drive (complete with pin requirement)? 

 

Thanks!

Hi @Gentleman Manatee, thanks for joining the Community!

Do you want to relocate your Dropbox folder onto the external drive itself?

Are you more interested in having files on the external drive sync to your Dropbox account, which already has a Dropbox folder on the internal drive?

This will help me to assist further!

Hi Jay, 

 

My boss had a dropbox account in which I am a member. I need those files synced to my lacie drive because there isn't enough space on my computer.  How do I do that?

 

Thanks

Happy Friday @tinkerbell2375, thanks for posting today! 

You would need to use the website in order for you to directly download all folders and files to your external drive. 

Here's how you can do so. 

Have you tried these steps?
