Dropbox has stopped the support of all linux file systems except ext4. You home dir is a network disk using NFS (Networked File System). We've tried moving Dropbox to a local disk formatted with the ext4 file system, but the Dropbox client will not move the data from your home drive to anywhere else... it claims it will, but then fails.
As a (probably permanent) workaround for RUG employees it's possible to add your Dropbox account to your Unishare account as "external storage". Then you won't need the Dropbox client anymore, but you can use the Owncloud client. Owncloud is the software used to create the Unishare environment. The Owncloud client is installed on all LWP's.
