Dropbox type sync?

Postby gibxxi » Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:48 am

Would like the option to link the dropbox addon/data to a global share as a pose to the current situation that only enables access via the admin user's home folder. I can SSH in and replace the default "Dropbox" folder under the admin home folder with a symbolic link pointing to a dedicated "Dropbox share" on the NAS, but this ability should exist in the addon by default.

You should be able to have different Dropbox accounts that link to NAS's user accounts (not only admin, but also others). However, the synchronized folder is still under user's home directory.
  • Login to NAS by your NAS account.
  • Launch Dropbox
  • Click login button. It should launch another web page for you.
  • Enter your dropbox login credential.
  • After succeeded, you are linked to Dropbox account (with this ADM login account).
