comment Safe way of synchronising Dropbox with backup
How do you stop it from copying half synched files? I mean large files which dropbox is in the process of downloading to your dropbox folder.

@Ramhound This is what I do at the moment but it means that it is rechecking every single file on both sides each time which is slow.

This is great if true but... :) It seems hard to imagine how a 1GB file could just appear instantly in your local dropbox folder. Unless there is some clever locking mechanism.

Right so that's the question. Can a large file ever be in the dropbox folder at location b half copied? Because I am copying from the local drive/dropbox folder at location B to the external drive.

In my case I copy the files to my dropbox folder in location A, and then copy the files from the dropbox folder in location B to the hard drive. This is the possible problem.

comment Mount on a per user basis
If you don't mind my asking, where in the config do you say that user A mounts users and user B mounts users and penguins? Sorry if this is obvious. In the example you gave I don't see any rules that associate users with particular mount points.

And there are about 100 users I should say as well.

Oh maybe I didn't explain something properly. All the users can log in to all the machines (using YP). I want the mount to be different depending on who logs in.

No problem. Thanks in any case.

@terdon Would this actually prevent user A from mounting /home/penguins? This is what I would like the result to be.

Sorry to be dim but how do you specify the per user part? I want user A to be prevented from mounting /home/penguins.

How can you use automount to mount on a per user basis?
