Dropbox and ReadyNAS 212 - how reliable?

I'm considering "moving to the cloud" using Dropbox and ReadyNAS. 

 

My idea is to move all my files ReadyNAS (to have a local copy / backup), and connect it with my Dropbox Pro account, consolidating all my files. I have a bunch of personal files plus 150 Gb in personal photos and videos. 

 

On on my day-to-day computer, I'd have Dropbox to download only the relevant folders, saving space, while ReadyNAS / DropBox will be my deep archive. 

 

My question: how stable is DropBox on ReadyNAS? Is it trustworthy?

 

thanks, 

Rafael

Hello rmdelatorre,

 

Dropbox on ReadyNAS backs up data from your ReadyNAS to your Dropbox account. From the local admin page, you can select a share on the ReadyNAS and sync it to a folder on your Dropbox account. Based in my experience, I have not encountered any problems so far.

 

The latest RAIDaitor 6.5.0 have this Dropbox moved to Cloud tab in the admin page.
