How to Migrate Data from a Server to Dropbox?

Before migrating your data, let your team about the migration and ask them to avoid changing files during the transaction. You need to be logged in to the server computer until the migration is complete. Don't power off, log out or change settings during the migration process. The Dropbox Desktop Application only syncs when you are logged in.

Following are the steps to Migrate Data from a Server to Dropbox:

  1. Download and install "Dropbox" on your server computer.
  2. Make sure that your are accessing the server directly and are not logging in remotely.
  3. Sign in to the Dropbox desktop application with your Dropbox for Business admin account credentials.
  4. An empty "Dropbox" folder will appear on the main drive of your computer.
  5. Here you have two options to migrate your data i.e you can move your Dropbox to the external drive or sync files in batches and use Selective sync.
  6. Open Dropbox folder and start setting up your folders.
  7. From the server computer, copy or move the folders that you would like to sync to Dropbox into the new folders you created.
