Glad to hear that works for you, but in our experience symlinks
can cause some issues so it's not something we can actively
What a lot of users, including myself, have done when faced with
larger Dropbox folders, particularly when the main drive is a
smaller SSD, is to move the entire home folder to a different
drive, that way the restrictions won't apply since the Dropbox
folder would still be at ~/Dropbox and would still be on another

Thanks for the advice. Does it mean you have moved the home folder or made a symlink ?
I encounter another problem on my macbook pro : I can not download the app from the mac app store : it says (in french) can not install without any details. I have rebooted my mac twice but is does not change anything. Have you any clue ?

You need to move Dropbox to your home folder using the Dropbox
Preferences. A Symbolic Link may or may not work properly and I
wouldn't recommend it.
Is it not installing on a different computer than you had it
installed on before? If so, you need to be running Mac OS X Lion in
order to install 1Password from the Mac App Store. Perhaps that is
I don't know how to do as for me it is important to have the app
on my desktop and my portable computer.
Understandable. Unfortunately we don't have much (any) control
over the installation procedure for the Mac App Store. I would
suggest contacting Apple Customer Service regarding this issue and
be sure to let them know what the error message you are receiving
I hope that helps. Should you have any other questions or
concerns, please feel free to ask.
