File transfer from Dropbox to work server

New member | Level 2

I would like to move or copy files in my dropbox to my server.  I've tried to copy but the files copy as a preview and will not convert to a word doc.  I've tried downloading but again the file is in preview and will not convert to a word doc.  How do you accompliance this?  I have multiple files and would like to do this without having to opening each file and saving.  Please help!  Thank you

If you're using the Dropbox website, you need to use the Download button at the top-right of the page when you've opened a file. You can also select a file (click the check box to the left of a file) and click Download in the menu on the right of the page.

Don't use the Save or Download options buildt-in to your browser or you'll just end up downloading the preview of the file, instead of the original.

Hey there @djungeblut  - how are you today?

As I'm not sure I understand how this happens, could you walk me through the exact steps you take to do this?

Also, can you not access our website and download your files from there?

On a side note, if you're using the desktop app as well, note that your Dropbox Folder is merely another folder on your computer - with syncing properties when our desktop app is running. In that case, you should be able to copy or move your files from there. 

Let me know if I'm missing something here please.
