Dropbox integration has a serious security flaw?

I attempted to set up Drobox integration the other day.  I clicked it on on the EX4 and validated the login on Dropbox’s site as instructed.  My plan was to have it sync to my personal share but it immediately started downloading my Dropbox heirarchy to the *Public* share.  It never gave me a choice on where the Dropbox data would be synced and the path field in the configuration is not editable.

Is this normal?  Luckily, I am the only user of the unit but to have this just start downloading everything to the Public share seems like a serious flaw for systems with multiple users.   Why would somebody want to store their personal Dropbox files on a share accessible by all?  


Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.
