Re: Drop box.

Hi Mike, here are some instructions for what you want to accomplish. I took this directly from Google. In step 2, it says click the gear icon. What you need to do is press tab until you hear something that says manage your settings. The rest of the steps are straightforward.

1. Click the Dropbox icon from your system tray.
2. Click the gear icon.
3. Click Preference.
4. Click Sync.
5. Click Move.
6. Select the new location for your Dropbox folder.
7. DONE.
8. Let Dropbox move your folder and its contents to the new location.

Hi George,

I know you can move the Dropbox from its default location and put it
elsewhere, but how do you keep it in its default location and only have the
storage located somewhere else? This would be handy. Thanks much.

Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.

Leave the dropbox program on the solid state drive but point it to the
4tb drive for storage. Let us know if you need instructions on how to
do it.

I have been updating my 2011 computer; i now have a 500GB SSD,
solid state drive; and a 4 TB drive inside the computer.

My drop box landed on the SSD. that is fine. But I tried to put it
onto the 4TB drive.

So I have an instance of it on the solid state drive, and also on the
4tb drive.

The 4tb drive doesn't seem to be working; that is, the drop box
program does not seem to be doing anything on the 4tb drive.

May i safely get rid of that, and just continue to use the one on the
solid state drive?

Remember, I'm not a whizz, i'm just an old computer user.
