Dropbox folder

Drop2NAS is an excellent functionality, but it is hindered by the choice of default download location, in the admin directory. Is there a way to change it to somewhere else?

I know the web UI doesn't provide for that, but I wouldn't mind having to SSH into the box and making a change by manually editing config files. Where is the config file for the dropbox plugin?

    In /i-data/sysvol/.PKG/DropboxClient/config

    Thanks. Yes, config is there, but the file is an SQL Lite database, and as such not readily editable.

    Also, Drop2NAS was superseded with full-blown DropBox sync app in latest FW versions (somewhere between v5.0 and v5.20), so it's no longer just emptying one DropBox directory to a local file system.

    Now just adding a cron job to periodically empty a local DropBox directory onto somewhere else will do the trick nicely.
