Backup of my all my Dropbox Folder (including files online)

Backup of my all my Dropbox Folder (including files online)

Hey, 

 

I want to backup my entire Dropbox-Folder including all my online Data to external hard drive.

My Laptop hard drive is too small to download the files locally, and I do not want to download every single folder manually.

Is there a way to backup and save all my online files at once at an external hard drive?

 

Best

Janna

Hi @jannerli 

Simply put.... no. 

 

The only way to do this is to download them and copy them to the external drive, sorry.

Hey Mark,

 

thank you for your really clear and fast response! 😉

I do not really understand why this is not more relevant for more people.

And why there is no option to do so – but yeah.

Thank you!!
