So I am trying to find a way to prevent a possible Dropbox doomsday scenario.
Say someone gets my dropbox login credentials. They log into the Dropbox web interface as me. They delete all my files. They change the account password. They change the account username/email. Lastly, they wait a few minutes to let my computer sync and then they unlink my computer from the account.
Later on in the day, I come back to my computer and my Dropbox folder is empty. All my Dropbox files, GONE.
Now, normally I can just open the dropbox menu and click launch dropbox website and open the web interface with no password. But I can't now because my computer has been unlinked. And I can't go to the web interface and restore them because the password has changed. I can't say I forget my password because my email/username has been changed. I am totally screwed.
This is the scenario I want to protect myself from.
I am thinking the only way to do this is making backups of my dropbox folder on a daily basis (with a cron tab task). That way if this scenario happens I will at least have the day-old data.
Any other ideas? Thanks.
