    Software for secure Dropbox backup

    What software you use to backup (to) Dropbox securely?

    I need sharing my office docs (from a researching institute) to Dropbox on a regular base, but I‘m afraid of general security and data leaking problems when using standard protocols.

    Please share your opinions!

      What are you missing in https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/security/how-security-works ?

      There’s nothing wrong, of course, (if allowed by the research institute and its software) to copy your valuable data to your own portable hard disk.

      Probably there’s nothing wrong also to trust the research institutes own backup procedures, but it’s always good to have another one. Once in a while you read about a university being hacked by ransomware.

      Once you share your data, it’s good as gone. (Leaked!)

      There are no end to stories about leaks here. Once you send them a copy, don’t believe a word it won’t leak.

      As Kees noted it’s not a matter of Dropbox here but the people you sent it to and their security. The more it’s shared, well, forget that, the moment you share, I’m write it’s been leaked.

      Dropbbox is secured already

      Dropbox is already secured cloud storage so there is no chance of leakage of data but if you stored physically first on office to hard drive then upload to Dropbox then there is possibility.

      So you can choose any migration tool for it like transferring the data without storing the data on PC.

        The transfer was already secure (debatable.)

        Can you reveal what security you are concerned about?
        The OP (original poster) was going to blow up any security they had once they gave copies to others.
