2 computers different sync need

2 computers different sync need

New member | Level 2

2 computers - I've read all the 2 computer questions.  Most are questions regarding syncing the 2 computers to each other, either all or limited.  I have a small business, paid account.  I have 2 computers for 2 separate businesses.

 

Computer 1 - Has personal & real estate business/investing programs, folders/files.

Computer 2 - Strictly used for Wildfire fight & support business programs folders/files.

 

Each needs to only sync relative folders.  No problem.  Selective Sync for each computer.

 

However, I would like to also use automatic backup for each individual computer (desktop, docs, downloads).  Is that possible?  Or, will that work with only one computer without syncing to the other? 

 

Summary:  Two different computer needs/worlds.  Do NOT want the computers to sync to each other, only to Dropbox.

Hi @WildfireFight,

As far as I know there isn't a way currently to sync standard folders "(desktop, docs, or downloads)", even if you want! 😉 So, you have no any problem.

Some queries for implementing such options are posted, but not implemented yet, so you will not be able make a mistake. 😄

Good luck!
