Hi

I have a new PC and would like the same Selective Sync settings on the new one as on the old one.

How do I achieve this?

 

Thanks,

Martin

There's no way to move the Selective Sync preferences. Each device needs to be set manually.

Same need here: As I use a small windows tablet during field visits in areas without wifi connection, I use selected selective sync. I do not sync videos in various folders since they take a lot of space. In other words I have deselected about 100 of folders in the course of time to amount of data in sync on the tablet below the memory space restrictions. In one year I will need to buy a new tablet but it is already clear that small tablets do not have the memory capacity I need to sync all my dropbox. So I will need to use selective sync again. It takes however a lot of time to deselect folders in the settings options. We should be able to export/back up "one selective sync profile". Please add this feature to dropbox.
