Select syncing folders for DropBox

By Patrick Stafford
Thursday, 22 December 2011

If you’re using DropBox on Windows then you probably have a number of folders within that DropBox folder to keep all of your stuff organised.

 

But you may not want to sync all of these folders. Thankfully there’s a way to organise all this.

 

To do so, right-click on the DropBox icon in the system tray and then hit “preferences”. There, you’ll need to click on the “advanced” tab at the top of the box.

 

There, click on the “selective sync” box. There you’ll be able to choose which folders you want synced to your computer from the DropBox.

SugarSync is a far better service. Once installed simply right click any file, folder or sub-folder to sync to the server. Use the SugarSync Manager to then sync any or all to other devices.
This eliminates the hassle of having to move or copy files to a dedicated sync folder and running the risk of having duplicated files.
