Mount up a USB device in Dropbox Folder

Helpful | Level 5

I am using Dropbox in Linux. And when I mount up USB device in the Dropbox Folder like

mount /dev/sdb1 /Dropbox/Folder1, although I can see the files of USB device in Folder1, but it doesn't sync. I can't see anything except an empty Folder1 in the Dropbox of other computers or websites.

Hey there @Zhihao_Jiang,

As a first, could you please confirm if your desktop app is running? 

Additionally, could you please clarify if you're able to see your content when you navigate through the website?

Thanks in advance!
