How can I make files Smart Synced faster than going through each one?

Explorer | Level 4

I am just starting to use Smart Sync. I click on a folder I want to put in Smart Sync, then Control-click and choose Smart Sync--Online only. But while the FOLDER says "smart sync" the individual FILES say neither Local nor SmartSync (when control-clicking).

Do I have to choose each individual file in each individual folder to move to SmartSync, or is there a way to just choose the folder?

Thanks

Newbie

Hi there @KCtx

Welcome to the Dropbox Community! I'd be more than happy to help. 

You should be able to make a whole folder online-only or local by right clicking and selecting the Smart Sync option as well, instead of choosing each file separately. 

However, could you please clarify what you see when you mention that you don't see a Smart Sync option for the folder? A screenshot (without any personal info) of this would be very helpful.

Let me know how it goes!

Whoa! Sorry I missed this answer! I figured out that if I click the Mac popup, it'll get me to the DB menu.

Thank you so much.

Again,, my apologies.
