To spend less money, you can try to collaborate with unique Dropbox accounts as long as you observe the 2GB limit for personal accounts. Only one person would need a PRO account or a PERSONAL account with many referrals to boost the total storage. You'd need enough storage to retain the folder contents of everyone you share a folder with (read/write ...

The closest you will get to what you want is using Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive, formerly LiveShare, formerly FolderShare) with WebDAV: You map your OneDrive account as a network drive. There are some other examples I found online, but this is the best written one with good screenshots.

Dropbox uses 'delta sync' which means only modified portions of files are downloaded/uploaded, instead of transferring entire files every time they’re changed. However, the Android app DropSync does not support delta sync. The reason this doesn't work with a TrueCrypt container (or any other encryption program worth it's salt) or some disk imaging solutions ...

Disconnect your hard drive that Dropbox is mapped to but leave the other hard drives in to take up the other drive letters. Right click on computer and click "Map network drive". Map the new drive letter that dropbox has adopted with another location. Even duplicate an existing location if you want. You need to let the computer know that that particular ...

There are a few ways that I'm thinking that can solve your problem. One is by resorting to a third party program which basically does what you want. It will encrypt anything that goes to Dropbox but requires a client to be installed on your system to be able to access your data. ...

Dropbox uses data deduplication. For this to work efficiently, everything needs to be encrypted with the same key. Otherwise, even if multiple people had the same file, it would have a different ciphertext for everyone, making deduplication impossible. This key is of course known only to Dropbox. Still, Dropbox could, theoretically, read all your data. ...

If you know the name of the file, the Events tab in Dropbox's web interface will tell you when the file finished uploading. The file will not show up in Events until it is uploaded completely.

They cannot change your password. This would require knowing your password because dropbox asks for the old password before allowing a new password As for blocking this it it is difficult but possible as far as I can tell. I believe that if you were to block access to the url https://www.dropbox.com/desktop_login on your computer it would prevent dropbox ...

Dropbox for Work has unlimited restore of previous versions. Dropbox Personal or Pro let's you restore up to the last 30 days. These are for files only, but in your situation, you may need to store folders to a specific point in time. Someone wrote a python script called dropbox-restore that may be what you need to perform a point in time restore. This is ...

No, Dropbox does not offer this as a feature. Just lock your workstation when you leave your seat. If you are using Windows, the shortcut key is Windows + L

Assuming you are accessing Dropbox through its website (rather than through the app): folders larger than either 1GB or 10,000 files cannot be downloaded this way. It's not possible to use the website to download an entire folder that's over 1 GB or that has over 10,000 files. If the folder is in your account, use the Dropbox desktop application to ...

Turn off or disconnect from network the infected PC and from another one login to the web interface in https://www.dropbox.com. From there, you can use right-click to rollback to an specific date. If you want to do it for a full directory you have to use external tools like this https://github.com/clark800/dropbox-restore

Dropbox doesn't seem to be able to parse Mac "aliases", which normally work like sym-links. So, if you're syncing a folder called Library and it has a child folder called Containers, can you move Containers somewhere else on your filesystem, and then place an "alias" of it back in Library? This will allow you (in the Finder) to visit the Containers folder ...

On Ubuntu 14.04: ls -lhat /proc/`pgrep dropbox`/fd | egrep -v "\-> socket:" | egrep -v "\-> pipe:" | egrep -v "\-> anon_inode" | egrep -v "/dev/null" | egrep -v "\-> /dev/*" The most-recently touched files are at the top of the list. For me right now, the process is churning on its own internal files (aggregation.dbx, deleted.dbx, ...

Three tools that I’ve used in the past with great results. All are for Windows. None are open source nor for Linux. Picasa: You just load up your images, then go into Experimental features to find the duplicates VisiPics: This tool scans for exact duplicates at its most restrictive setting. You can “loosen” the setting to find similar images. For example, ...

ImageMagick should be able to make some hashes to compare images, but it's more like a toolkit you'd have to spend some time learning how to use & create your own custom answer that does exactly what you want, rather than a "here's your answer pasted in". But even Google's "similar images" is far from perfect, and the best way to really detect duplicates ...

No, there are no options to except a particular device from auto importing photos into DropBox. You either toggle auto import of photos on or off which effects all devices. The closest solution would be to write an AppleScript to differentiate between your phone and your camera, and allow only your phone to auto import photos into your DropBox.

First things first: You should be using Dropbox. Just my opinion, but a strong one. Presumably at this point, you have files in OneDrive, but not on your computer. You probably have OneDrive installed already, but in case you don't: Install OneDrive. Sign into OneDrive with your Microsoft ID It will make you click through a couple of basic prompts, but ...

No, this is not possible. When you move a folder or file to another location, Dropbox process the action as an add and delete. The folder and files start with a clean slate. Any previous version history is attached to the previous location of that folder or file. You can restore deleted items from the previous location and restore different versions of files ...

When the Dropbox desktop application is installed, it doesn't create a folder in the Program Files location as most applications do; it installs as a User-specific program by default. I assume that this is so that only the user who installed it will have access to his/her files. This is why it did not appear in your program files/start menu. I just ...

And if you don't like or want to modify any of those key mappings, you can do so in System Preferences. Open the Keyboard system preference pane and choose the shortcut tab. Select App Shortcuts from the left then click the plus sign just below the right display box Click the Application drop down and choose Mail Enter the menu choice you want to simplify. ...

Dropbox works by splitting the file into pieces (like Bittorrent). I don't know if the iOS or Android apps work the same, but Dropbox will just verify the split 4MB file pieces are identical and not upload it again. The .IMG file is most likely changing the content enough so that the file pieces do not match the previous upload.
