unable to move the Dropbox Folder outside /.

Explorer | Level 3

I just installed the client (v74.4.115) on a new system (Ubuntu Studio 19.04), and can't move the Dropbox folder as needed, since the tool for changing location of the Dropbox folder is unable to find any drives/partitions other than the system root. It does not list the folder /media/ and refuses to believe that it exists when pointed towards it. This is quite a problem, since my Dropbox folder is larger than the system partition.

Hi @wicKed_deViant,

Just something: What file system is set on the partition You want move to? Only Ext4 are supported (by default).

If Your file system is different, then one option is reformat. If You want to keep the current file system then option is to mask FS type, using something like this.

Hope this helps.
