We changed computers – ours were old – and I had to reinstall the Dropbox to get all of our documents. The computer has a dual drive, C for the operating system and D with much larger capacity for everything else.
Me: Download Dropbox to D drive.
Me: Install dropbox.
I check the file path. It’s C.
Me: Google, fix this.
Google: Here are some results from 2012!
Me: Grr. Limit search by year.
Google: Here you go.
Me: Okay, so I open Dropbox app, click on the settings, properties, click on move, then tell it where to go. Dropbox, do this.
Dropbox: I am still syncing. You have 4,000 documents.
Me:… How… Nevermind.
Dropbox: Synching. Syyyynching. Ok, done.
Dad: What are you doing on your computer? Do you need help?
Me: No, thank you. Dropbox, move yourself.
Dropbox: Where shall I move the files, Dread Mistress?
Me: Save document in Dropbox.
PC: Um, no. Path incorrect.
Me: For the love of… Where is it? It’s not in the C drive still, is it? Where did I install Dropbox?
PC: D drive under Socuments.
Me: Oh. Rename file.
PC: Um, no. The file is in use by the open app…
Me: FINE. SOCUMENTS IT IS. I just want to access the file to get a snippet.
Documents: None of your files are accessible. You need to relink your account.
Me: Relink Dropbox.
Dropbox: Good news, I’ve installed myself to your C drive.
Me: It’s 2019. Why in the name of the bloody nine hells can’t I f***ing change the f***ing install path. &*#$%@^&@!
Dropbox: I am synching, you have 4,000 files, please wait.
And this is why there is no snippet this morning.
