CloudHQ = most useful tool for my Chromebook

Recently got a Chromebook and LOVE it! Only downside is that it difficult to download entire folders from Dropbox. The answer is... **drumroll please**
Here's how
Once you’re signed up for CloudHQ, just follow these steps to “natively mount” Dropbox to your Chromebook or Chromebox:
Create a folder in Google Drive called “Dropbox.”
In your CloudHQ online console, click on the Synchronize tab, and then Add Synchronization Pair.
Select Google Drive, and then select your folder called “Dropbox.”
Next, select your Dropbox account, and make sure you select the entire account.
Ensure you have two way sync enabled, and select the option to replicate deletions.
Select the option to enable real-time synchronization, done!

It can be expensive, but they also offer a few ways to get it free!
