You can store web-based files in Dropbox, but you can’t add or move them to your Dropbox account from somewhere else. Web-based files include:
- Google Docs (.gdoc)
- Google Sheets (.gsheet)
- Google Slides (.gslides)
To move web-based files to your Dropbox account, you have 2 options:
1. You can download (or export) a copy of your file as a file type that can be added to Dropbox (like .docx), and then upload it to Dropbox (but it won’t be a web-based file anymore).

2. You can create a new web-based file in Dropbox, and then copy and paste the contents over to it from the web-based version of the file.
