I'm looking for the Dropbox folder on my Phone and I can't find it with my file manager. If I only had access to the find command it would be easier.

    which phone? does it have external SD- my DropBox app is downloading stuff to /external_sd/dropbox - I cannot remember if I set that as a option anywhere? – Mesh Feb 24 '11 at 13:23

    For what it's worth, mine is located at /sdcard/dropbox – ale Feb 24 '11 at 14:22

    Seems to have moved recently from 'sdcard/dropbox' to '/sdcard/Android/data/com.dropbox.android/files/scratch'. Much easier to find... – pelms Mar 5 '12 at 17:28

It should be noted that the Dropbox app doesn't actually sync the files to your phone, it just presents you with a list. Whenever you select a file in the Dropbox app, then it downloads it to your phone. On my Incredible, the dropbox folder is just in the root of the SD card.

Astro File Manager also has a good search function, and has a lot of handy functions connected to file management.

Root Explorer has an excellent search function.

On Ice Cream Sandwich the folder is at

/sdcard/Android/data/com.dropbox.android/files/scratch

I have an idea. Go to your box on your droid. Hit the menu tab. Then you will see "upload here" which is the way to upload a file from the sd card to the dropbox! Which works great for me not having internet to send from my laptop to droid as well as attaching files to inbox messages.

    Could you please edit your answer to explain how it will help the OP? It seems like he wanted to find the location where files are saved to his device. – dotVezz Jan 29 '14 at 22:09
