Hey there Peter, how are you today?

This should be fairly easy to do. Simply follow the steps outlined in the following Help Center article: https://help.dropbox.com/desktop-web/move-dropbox-folder

Specifically: 

  1. Click the Dropbox icon in the system tray or menu bar.
  2. Click Preferences (Linux), or the gear icon (macOS and Windows)
  3. Click Sync (on macOS you’ll first need to click Preferences…).
  4. Click Move… (Linux and Windows), or Dropbox location (macOS).
  5. Select the new location for your Dropbox folder.
  6. Let Dropbox move your folder and its contents to the new location. 

[Pro tip: You can adjust your bandwidth settings as well, should you need to boost the syncing process that is.]

Let me know if this helped!
