Dropbox is one of the most popular cloud storage applications out for both PC and Mac. Tricia is a big fan as we discussed in our How We Make AlliOSNews Work post and I use it as well (although I tend to lean more towards OneDrive). There is one aspect of Dropbox that is brilliant and that is the ability to move the Dropbox folder from a location other than your hard disk. That means I can save those precious SSD gigabytes for other things (F1 2013 Classic) and have my important, cloud synced files on external drive.
Moving your Dropbox folder is actually very easy to do if you know where to look and takes just a few clicks to make happen. Now I should warn you that Dropbox does not recommend you move your Dropbox folder from a location other than the same disk as your Operating System. Their point is if the folder ever became unaccessible, Dropbox wouldn’t work properly. So this How To is a bit at your own risk. My answer to this was a non-moving media. Remember that Nifty MiniDrive Pro review from a few weeks ago? Yep, that’s exactly what I’m using it for on my MacBook Pro. The 64GB MicroSD card that is in my Nifty drive is my Dropbox drive effectively. And because this is never unplugged from my Mac’s SD slot and on flash media, it should never go away.
