A "DropBox" / "Clonezilla" back up question...


Hello:

I subscribe to DropBox and save all my important data in my /home/DropBox folder which, I presume, is living on my /home partition (/dev/sda3).

I was hoping that I could create a new partition (/dev/sda4), 'move' my DropBox folder to this new partition so that when I use Clonezilla to make my back up images (/dev/sda1 & /dev/sda3) it would take much less time and space.

Does this make sense? Is it possible?

Thanks.

I think that if you delete the .dropbox folder in your home directory,

make sure dropbox isn't running and not selected to autostart on login,

then log out and back in and open up dropbox again,

it will re-run the set-up and it will detect your Dropbox directory

and ask you if you want to merge it or use another location.

Just change the location in dropbox preferences.
