    Disable Dropbox and Google Drive


    I have two users on my laptop, they are both me, one when I'm home, my laptop is connected to a 22" monitor and I use it like a desktop computer. My other user is when I travel, so that has very few apps on the desktop and in the taskbar. When I'm on wifi in a hotel I don't want my Dropbox or Google Drive to sync, I know I can turn them off manually, but I 'd like to have them off when I or my wife logs in. Is that possible?

    :)

    Saving from dropbox on computer to external hardrive

    Hi Annie,

    I realize that you are facing issues with the dropbox files. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:


    • Did you make any changes to the PC prior to this issue?

    • Are you trying to save files to an external drive or the dropbox online storage account?
    Suggest you to access the files directly from the web account of the dropbox and check if you are able to download and save the files on the PC locally. Once the files are saved successfully then you can move them to the external
    drive.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.
