Selective Sync: Dropbox

Dropbox is a great application to use on windows. Syncing everything dynamically with no human intervention. All you have to install the application and copy paste the stuff you want to upload to the cloud for usage from another computer or for sharing photos and documents. But do you really want to keep all the stuff you store on drop box on your computer as well. I don’t think so. No matter how much memory you have, any extra GB of space is much appreciated. Besides there is no point in keeping a copy of things you don’t need on your pc.

But the good news is. There is a solution. You can actually decide what folders you want to have on your pc.

How do you do it

Right click on the drop box icon on the task bar and click on preferences.


When a new menu opens, click on the advanced tab and click selective sync.


A new window appears, There you can select which folders you want both in your pc and the cloud. If you want it, click on the check box if not, uncheck it and click on update.


That is all.

Thanks for reading.
