Location of MySQL data directory inside Dropbox / Google Drive folder
I am setting-up a new MySQL database on a new machine, and I was considering to change the default data-directory to a new folder, specifically, inside my Dropbox folder. In actual fact, my Dropbox folder is inside my Google Drive folder, and I was wondering if there is any downside to setting the MySQL data directory inside these folders.
Is this something that will provide me with added levels of backup protection? Or are there risks and downsides that I am not appreciating?
