Music files auto backup

Music files auto backup

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I am a dj so basically I move a lot of files on a daily basis, whether it be adding new music or taking out old music. Is there a way, like an auto setting that I can use that whenever I add to my music folders I can synce them with my dropbox and it automotically mimics my music folder or is this something I would have to do manually. I usually backup my folders manually to dropbox on a montly basis

Hello @djstorm, thanks for posting your question on the Dropbox Community. 

 

In general, anything you place into your Dropbox folder syncs to your Dropbox account, and anything outside of it doesn't. 

 

You can have a look at using symlinks, but it's recommended even then to have the original data inside your Dropbox folder. 

 

I understand that this may not be the ideal reply you were looking for, but you can propose this as a feature you'd like to see in the future, here, where other like-minded users can comment and upvote. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions, cheers!
