Integrate Dropbox with Google Drive

Integrate Dropbox with Google Drive

New member | Level 2


I have been using Google Drive with my Drive folder saved "inside" Dropbox folder for almost a decade now. This has allowed me to save all my Google Drive files safely in Dropbox, without worrying about losing any of it. The recent updates to both Dropbox and Drive have started showing sync issues in Drive, which is resolved only if I pause Dropbox sync momentarily and re-upload Drive files, or I quite and re-start Drive. These issues have started just these past 2-3 months. Moving Drive out of Dropbox is not an option I am comfortable with, since I lose the backup option Dropbox gives me. Can you please fix the bugs to restore both software working synchronously and harmoniously again?

Thank you!

This isnt something Dropbox, or even Google, have decided to do - it is one forced upon them by the OS developers. This wont change unless it changes at OS level (i.e. Apple)


Putting both together has always been a recipe for disaster and one not to do - you are very, very lucky not to have had huge data losses due to it.
