How to backup whole dropbox account online ?

How to backup whole dropbox account online ?

Helpful | Level 6

I'm searching for a tool to make an online backup of all my dropbox business account content. The aim is to provide unlimited undelete/restore options to my folders and files.

I dont' want to go through a local desktop backup - like Crashplan or similar - as my business account is only partially locally loaded into desktop PCs being very big.

The whole dropbox content is only available online.

So I'm looking for an external service that could directly grab all my dropbox files and backup them into another forever permanent cloud space.

Any hints?

W.

Hey there @wmac  - how are you today?

I'm not sure what will meet your needs so feel free to take a look at our active integrations here: https://www.dropbox.com/app-integrations 

You can use the filters towards the end of the page for better results too!

If there's anything else you'd like to ask, don't hesitate to let me know; I'm always a post away!

Thank you Walter but the integrated services list doesn’t have any backup service.

In the meantime I found this services maybe similar:

- cloudHQ

- MulCloud

is any dropboxer here with some hints on them?

While I'm not in the position to comment on or suggest any third party apps, I'd urge you to take a look at our integration with Synology as it's the one that best suits your needs, based on your initial inquiry that is. 

I'll also leave this thread open for anyone who has anything to offer in this conversation @wmac

Thank you pointing out Synology NAS and their Dropbox integration...

But I'd like to use a cloud only solution, I'm on the move and all my organization is liquid without any physical IT infrastructure...

I'm still in the search of the best cloud backup solution for my whole dropbox content.

I see there are dozens backup solutions out there but apparently any of them work starting from a physical Hard Disk, they just copy your hard disk somewhere else.

I hoped some of them would copy your cloud content (Dropbox or maybe others) to backup somewhere else.

I hoped too Dropbox directly could provide such service, I'm willing to pay to have an unlimited backup ( unlimited versioning and unlimited undeleted). In the beginning Dropbox offered such service but then it was removed.

I'm here to get any advice from dropboxers to find out best strategy to backup online my whole Dropbox content. I use "selective sync" so not all my library is locally loaded: the full Dropbox archive is only available online.

Thanks for elaborating on this one @wmac - most appreciated!

At this point, all I can suggest is browsing the web for a 3rd party app or service using a search term that would best fit your needs (something like 'cloud back-up software' or something similar) and take it from there.

I wish I could be more helpful than this.

What integration are you talking about?

I use Synology NAS and the cannot backup Team folders. Its a known problem. And the folders I can backup suffer from the API call limit....

I've been going through some DropBox hell, and some of my files are
locked in DropBox purgatory.
The Desktop sync app has gone a bit haywire and local files are
getting DELETED. Files up in my DropBox cloud account server appear to
be intact.

Looking to possibly MIGRATE ("transfer") my 1.5 TB of files from
DropBox to a Linode dedicated server

I see there have been some discussions on the subject ===>>>
