    I've read several post on this forum where users have saved their OneDrive folder inside their dropbox folder. My first impression would be that this could call some synchronization issues.

    I replied to a few of these posts and one user said they have had no issues with this, the other one said that they did have data loss.

    Have you tried this? Has it been reliable for you? Do you think that putting one synchronization folder inside the other would cause problems?
    Thank you.

    I suppose to have the best of both worlds. MS Office only syncs to OneDrive. I have apps that only sync to Dropbox, but I have far more OneDrive storage.

    I guess it is a way to use two sync services while only dealing with one

    If you're paying for storage space then you'd be effectively paying twice if you did this. If you're just using the free allotment then you'd be wasting that space.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess:)

    Why don't you give it a whirl?

    I'm scared of potential data loss.

    Have you asked the Dropbox support people?

    No, I guess I'll try that.
