Backup & Restore To & From Dropbox

Post by rozel »

Hi - I am interested in buying this software so that I can backup my Photo Collection (currently around 500GB but likely to be 1.5TB in the next few months). Obviously I could just copy them all to my PC's Dropbox folder and sync them that way and then close Dropbox, delete them from the local DB folder after they've uploaded and then reopening Dropbox later. I've done this many times with stuff - it's fiddly but doable. Obviously by saying all that my overall concern is I don't want to have 2 copies of my Photo Collection on my Desktop PC as space is precious. OK, then if I have to restore (say the whole damn thing), I hit the max download limit that Dropbox imposes. So all in all this way of Backing Up and Restoring isn't practical/doable.

Given that SyncBackPro advertises that it works with Dropbox, exactly how do I achieve what I want to do please? I want to initially backup my full collection followed by Incremental (is that the correct name?) backups on say a weekly basis for any changes. If then, say I had a complete SSD failure (my photos are stored locally on a 2TB NVMe SSD), how would the Restore work? I have searched the forum for "Restore" but this word is rejected by the search system for some reason lol! In both cases (ie; Backup and Restore) I want to bybass the need to have the Photo Collection backed up and restored to and from my PC's Local Dropbox folder.

Can I chieve what I want to do with this software please?

Thanks
