Dropbox has announced that on November 7, they're dropping support for a wide range of Linux file systems except for unencrypted ext4. See
This is being discussed on the Dropbox support site and on twitter and slashdot.
I've been running ext4 with ecryptfs on my home directory without any problems, but this will apparently not be supported after November 7.
If I wipe my system and reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 with full disk encryption and run ext4 on top of that it has been suggested to me that the Dropbox client will be happy. Has anyone confirmed that this will work?
It's also been suggested that one could create an ext4 filesystem within a file outside of the ecryptfs home directory and setup dropbox to run on that filesystem. This would leave the Dropbox files unencrypted. Has anyone confirmed that this will work?
Is it possible to simply tell Dropbox to store its files unencrypted in /var/Dropbox?
Are there any other suggested solutions for us ecryptfs+ext4 users?
