I´ve just signed up to Dropbox (free account) and want to move my Documents folder to it. It´s quite small, ca. 750MB. However, when I try to move it into Dropbox I get a warning telling me that my home Documents folder “cannot be moved to dropbox as it is required by macOS”. So I´ve thought about maybe creating a new folder on Dropbox (called whatever) and then moving just the contents of my Documents folder into this new folder. I´ve tried this with just a tiny folder and it works. Is this the right way to go about using my Documents folder with Dropbox or am I missing something here?!
By the way, I have a brand new iMac running High Sierra 10.13.3 with a 500GB internal flash drive, if it´s relevant.
I do use iCloud, but only for syncing Calendar, Notes, Contacts etc. between my Mac and iPhone, and don´t want to turn on “Desktop & Documents”. Thanks for any help/suggestions, and just let me add that I really enjoy your weekly newsletter and video clips! Best regards, Ian.
