Dropbox is not intended as a replacement for High Capacity Storage (HCS).

Dropbox does not support synchronisation of folders that are stored on a network file share, including redirected folders in a virtual desktop environment such as My Documents on the University of Otago staff desktop. Please check with your departmental IT support staff if you are not sure whether your folders are being redirected.

These folders have their own file locking, versioning, access rules, and information that Dropbox is not able to access, meaning that because Dropbox cannot accurately determine the state of the files in these folders, it cannot safely or reliably synchronise them or share them with others.
