Photo backup headaches (Lightroom on Mac with Dropbox)


Hall of Famer
I have maintained a local dropbox folder for years without issues. Suddenly, all my files were removed from my local drive to "save space" and sent into the dropbox cloud where they are now "easy to retrieve." Thanks Dropbox!!

Except it breaks the Lightroom operation. Lightroom doesn't see the file and everything is messed up.

I brought my LR catalog down local and out of DP, and I do have a local backup disk, but I still want cloud storage and/or backup.

How are other folks doing this? I can of course rely on Apple's iCloud for a HDD backup, but I really liked the Dropbox (former) approach of easy availability across devices, yet a local copy on my hard drive. Does Adobe itself offer such a service?

What are other folks doing?
