Can't back up portableapps.com from Dropbox

I installed the portableapps.com at dropbox driver. I also installed portable apps that are not from portableapps.com at dropbox. Today, I want to use portabledapps.com at USB driver with the same apps that was installed at dropbox.

I think that is impossible to backup from dropbox then restore at USB driver. But I can't although I check "Complete (all file on your portable driver)" in backup window. The backup process was not complete.

I try to copy portableapps.com then paste to USB driver but it is very slow and I do not believe that is the right way.

Can anyone help me? Thank you very much.

P/S: I so sorry about my english. It is not good Smile

Unsupported

There are no legitimate versions of Dropbox that run portably. We do not release or support a Dropbox client. Please use the official Dropbox client only.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I have used the official Dropbox client. I tried to uninstall then reinstall the dropbox app but I can not backup. Thanks for your help.

Installed to dropbox, now moved to usb drive?

If I understand you correctly, you originally installed the platform to your dropbox folder on your local computer, and now want to transfer it to a usb drive? If that's the case, follow these steps:

  1. First off, pause syncing on your dropbox.
  2. Next, run the complete backup like you tried.
  3. Then, download the platform & install it to your usb drive: https://portableapps.com/download
  4. Finally, from the backup option, restore your backup.

The reason the backup isn't working is that dropbox is syncing while you backup. It's getting stuck backing up as a result.

Hope that helps!
