My wife has two computers.
One has been using Dropbox. The other didn't but I just added the Dropbox app and selected the main folders to sync via Dropbox.
But now I realize that those folders I selected are not exactly the same as on her "main" computer and the ones that are the same are starting with different files. Did I screw up?
How do I get the two computers matched up with the same folders syncing through Dropbox?

Thank you for helping.
The user is correct but yes I did set up the new computer with the computer backup feature. On her main computer, there is now a folder in the Dropbox folder with the travel computer name and those 3 folders within.
But if I'd like them backed up on both computers, how would I do that?
And is there a way so they don't show as folders withing a folder as currently on her main Mac. Right now they show within the Dropbox folders and within a folder titled "On My Mac" plus I believe the name of that computer.
I'm not sure what you mean by "are the rest of the files the same....". Do you mean overall or withing the Dropbox folders on both?
Thanks much for this assistance. Really appreciate..... And my wife does too. 😉 LOL
In order for those three backed up folders to sync, always be the same, on the two computers, do I select the computer backup feature on both computers?
And is there an easy way to make sure the two computers are "Connected computers"?
Yes, within the Dropbox folders all the data appears to be identical.
