Change Dropbox storage folder?



  • Hi all.
    Is there a way to change the folder in Dropbox where npp stores it’s cloud settings data?

    Thanks!



  • @ApKNJ

    the normal setting is stored under settings->preferences->cloud but
    I assume you already aware of it.
    If you are, may I ask you to give an example what you try to achieve?

    Cheers
    Claudia



  • Ha, well, as it turns out, my question turned out to really be “can you change the Dropbox folder on pre-6.8 versions where there was only a single “Dropbox” radio button, since I’m working on systems I can’t easily get permission to upgrade?”
    But honestly I didn’t realize newer versions had changed. Your post prompted me to go and read the release notes, and I’m guessing the answer is no.



  • If I’m understanding the question correctly, the answer is yes, you can set/change the folder location. I don’t use Dropbox, but for Google Drive, I have to set up the application on my PC, then, for example, my location is Google Drive\Development\Npp. If I wanted to change it to Google Drive\Npp or something else, as long as that folder exists on Google Drive, I can change it. Note that I’m currently on version 7.3.3.
