One account with multiple PCs Can I have one PC as the master and the others not update dropbox?

One account with multiple PCs Can I have one PC as the master and the others not update dropbox?

Explorer | Level 4

I have three PC's with one Dropbox account.

I want my primary computer to sync with dropbox for adding or deleting files. But I want the other two computers to only mirror the online dropbox account.  I want to prevent the other two computers from adding or deleting files from my Dropbox account.

Hi @bwolfe85, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Currently, there isn't a feature to have computers only mirror what is on the account, and not edit them in any way.

 

If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
