• Move synced Dropbox folder to another drive?

    Hi there

    I have Antergos installed on a computer where I have multiple drives. By default, when I install Dropbox it goes to my home folder which is on my SSD, which is a fair bit smaller than an HDD that I have. Is it possible to move the folder from the SSD to the HDD?

    I’m running Gnome as well if that makes any difference.

    I think you can move it, but first quit dropbox, then move the dropbox folder, then make a symlink from the old place to new. Dropbox won’t notice any difference.
    For example, something like this:

    mv ~/Dropbox /your/new/path/for/dropbox
    ln -s /your/new/path/for/dropbox ~/Dropbox

    That’s wonderful, thank you. I’m just getting my new system set up now so I’ll try and see if it works.

    If you feel it is solved, can you mark this thread as such? 🙂
