I want to stop selective sync and sync everything

New member | Level 1

Hi Guys. When I installed Dropbox on this netbook I chose selective sync and now I want to sync everything. How can I to that? I can't find an option anywhere. Thanks.

Did you ever get this resolved? I'm trying to disable Selective Sync as well and haven't found a way to do it.

Just retick the boxes in the Selective Sync menu

Ticking all the boxes in Selective Sync does not disable Selective Sync. If you create a new folder, it will not automatically sync if Selective Sync is on, I think.

In point of fact, that's precisely what it does do.

This is not true, since all new folders will sync regardless of your Selective Sync settings.
