I ran in to the same problem, the Dropbox.exe disappeared for no reason from my Dropbox\bin directory. The solution that worked for me was to install DropBox again with out uninstalling it. That way it kept all the previous configurations and files, and only added Dropbox.exe to the Dropbox\bin directory.

NetDrive will integrate with Windows and allow you to connect Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive accounts (as well as others) and map them as network drives (or local drives) and as I requested NetDrive also gives the correct free/total space. 30 days free trial thereafter a one off $45 fee for a single license

Remember, Dropbox is sync service not a backup service. If you want, you can manually upload the contents on the EHD to a folder (archive) that you have unchecked in selective sync. Anything you send to that folder will then not sync with that computer.

It might not be a solution to your problem but since i am not allowed to write a comment i have to write it this way. In general SMB shares only show the free/total space of their host drive as you already noticed. What do you exactly try to achieve? Is your primary goal managing your shared folders (dropbox, google, ...) in different drives showing the ...

It's displaying the correct numbers for the drive the folder is located on. Windows does not know how to get this data for your account. One possible way round it would be to write a driver/app that installs as a drive and has the ability to query for your account. I don't know if such a driver/app already exists

The people with whom share that folder will only see the files and sub folders within it. They will not will not see its parent folder or any other folders in your Dropbox.

I don't think 50GB is a lot of data to keep synced, but if you really want to complicate your setup, you can look at rdiff-backup. You can send incrementals to a server, then restore to your other machine. This assumes your second machine is exact copy of your first computer without the incremental changes. I think what you want can actually have disastrous ...

Just add Dropbox as a library. Takes 30 seconds and is much easier than the registry solution. Instrutions here: http://www.ghacks.net/2011/12/07/add-dropbox-as-a-library-to-windows-7/ (works the same way for Win 8)

Open the hamburger menu and open the "Shared" tab. Everything that was shared with your account should be there.

The Dropbox integration is over rated. It just saves the settings to its own folder. Just install NotePad++ from PortableApps and install it to a Dropbox folder. Everything will be synced going forward.

Current version (6.7.5) has a bug causing the above issue. Version 6.7.4 I have confirmed allows Dropbox sync, athough Onedrive still appears disabled (at least in my case).

There are quite a few reasons why these cloud storage providers do not sync the content of the entire folder like their desktop versions. Firstly space is an issue. It may not be for you but it is for many users. Smartphones do not have that huge amount of storage as compared to desktop. So space utilization is an important factor. You may have sufficient ...

Most likely because a phone doesn't have the same capabilities as a desktop. It is typical on phones and tablets to have limited and metered bandwidth. Were cloud applications like those to sync everything, you could accidentally reach your limits, or you would just notice your connection was slow or your battery was getting quickly drained. Also, yes, ...

Though renaming a shared folder itself does not affect the name of that shared folder in the DropBox of other members, you can create, rename or delete subfolders within the main shared folder and this will immediately update in the shared directory tree of other members.

You save your document using "Save As" and save it to the local drive. If it happens to be in the OneDrive folder, it will upload after you save it locally. You are editing a remote file currently which is why it is taking longer to save the document. Rather than saving it locally, you are always saving it remotely. The issue with saving a document as Save ...
