About Dropbox

Popular file syncing service.

This package will update existing Dropbox profiles and install Dropbox per machine, rather than per user.

Dropbox account is required to use the application.

If a user is logged on at the time of the install PDQ Deploy will attempt to restart Dropbox after deployment.

This package will delete the auto update tasks in Task Scheduler though removing these tasks doesn’t guarantee that auto updating will not take place. To completely remove auto update you may need to disable the dbupdate and dbupdatem services. Doing this may cause unwanted behavior in Dropbox.

Possible installation issues with Windows Vista and Server 2008. Dropbox is not supported on XP.

Dropbox was released on Apr 27th 2017
