Attix5 Pro, when used together with the Dropbox Windows agent, can be used to backup files to a location outside of Dropbox.
Attix5 Pro allows the restore of different file revisions from different backup dates, and can also be used to restore deleted files.
- Install the Dropbox Windows agent for your desktop or laptop user.
- Install Attix5 Pro - either DL, SE or ESE.
- By default, the local copy of Dropbox files will be synched to C:\Users\Username\Dropbox. Select and include this folder for backup.
- Run a backup to back up the files to the Attix5 Storage Platform.
The files can now be restored as normal.
Note: If synchronising large amounts of data from Dropbox, you will need sufficient free space on your Windows machine to store these according to the space limitations used by the Backup Client. The files will be read during a backup, which will initiate a sync to your device from where they can be read by Attix5. Backups may report these files as skipped until local synchronisation is completed.
