Indexing Dropbox files

Postby ddr » Wed Oct 02, 2019 7:46 am

I'm interested in the connection to the cloud as x1 does with Box and OneDrive, not the dropbox folder on my computer. Is this feature planned? If so, timeline please.

I would like to ask the very same question... Is X1 developer team planning to start indexing dropbox offline files?
OR, maybe the question should rather be... can they actually do it???
Either case... an answer would most be welcome... as the question is a very valid one... Why?... Well.., in case somebody didn't notice it, Dropbox allows certain folders to be totally offline but still allows you to list them in a directory listing within your computer but does not download a specific file until that specific file is explicitly requested to be open by the user... What does that mean?... Well, you can literally extend your storage capacity - hence... the question pops... How do we know which file to open - if we cannot index those offline files...
And the answer is......?????
