How to Fix a Data Corruption when using DropBox
The video below will take you through some of the Do’s and Don’ts with using EasyAs and DropBox, and will also show you how you can resolve a data problem with the use of backup files.
Before Viewing the Video:
You will discover in the video that the speaker restores the data files to the main dropbox location on the internet. This is just one of the locations that you might use to restore the data files, you could also use one of the pc’s. As you watch the video you will see that the corrupted data files are deleted from all the dropbox locations and then they are restored by uploading the backup files to the main dropbox location.
As an alternative you could also simply place the files in one of the dropbox locations on one of the pc’. By copying the files into one of these locations (lets say the dropbox location on the main pc) the dropbox facility will soon discover those files and will automatically update to the internet and then to any of the other pc’s involved (such as the laptop), which is exactly how dropbox is suppose to work.. Please keep this alternative in mind when you watch the video..
Remember there are many ways to resolve problems and these are just some examples of problem solving.
These videos go over some examples of deliberately corrupting data.
