A suggested solution for changing online only files to local cync was to "sync your files locally(on the top folder level)" . This is not very helpful, because the problem is how to sync files locally.
So, how do you "sync your files locally (on the top folder level)" ???
I can't see the files in the desktop app and I can't change their sync mode in the web interface. Changing the top level dropbox icon to local sync in the desktop app does not affect the files that are online only.
Thanks, but since the files are not visible in the desktop app, I find it difficult to right-click them. The highest level dropbox-symbol is visible and right-clicked to "local" about 100 times. Only a few of the files under it are present locally on my computer.
I can't tell the difference between files being selective or smart (not) synced. Are there different ways to make them appear? /tiina
