While the answer is technically yes, it is highly discouraged and not supported by Zotero. A personal or Caltech Box account is a good alternative. See for detailed instructions. Or, according to a Zotero forum discussion, "if your goal is to just sync file attachments across devices and you do not want to upgrade your storage, your best option is using a third-party WebDAV provider." Visit for more information about WebDav or for a more detailed explanation of issues surrounding Dropbox and Zotero.
