Is there any way to configure the Dropbox app so that all Dropbox files, now and future, are available offline on the SD card?

    There isn't any way. You can do that by using apps that sync Dropbox to external SD

  • Thanks. Do you know of such an app, or should I ask at softwarerecs.stackexchange.com ? My idea, though, is that all of my DropBox stuff is available offline, and I think that you have to do that on a per file basis, so it may not be easy, or even possible

    I use this paid app which works very well. Free version allows only sync of selected folder and pro entire Dropbox with a host of useful options. If you want give it a try and let me know

  • Alas see this. Your question is probably a dupe of this and am going to vote for closing. android.stackexchange.com/q/26728/131553

  • I haven't tried folder sync though so not sure if it backs up to SD card. If it doesn't, please clarify so that your question is not closed

Yes, you can

  • Specifically, making a file available offline:

  • Adds the file to your Offline view for easy access (like a bookmark)

  • Saves the file to your Android device for offline viewing within

  • Attempts to keep the file as up-to-date as possible and gives you the option to update the file manually

  • Ensures that any changes you make to the file while offline will be
    synced to your Dropbox account once you have a connection again

  • I don't want to make a file offline. I want to make all of my DropBox files available offline. Both those which I have today and those which I add in future, and I do not want to have to do it manually for each file.

  • There was an an unofficial app that did just that. Search the Play Store. It is not allowed to give software recommendations here.
