Re: new computer sync mistake

new computer sync mistake

When downloading dropbox onto my new computer it said - do you wantt to sync all of your files across - stupidly, I said no, forgetting that they need to be accessible on this computer. How do I now get them all to sync to the new computer?

 

Rookie error made on my behalf.

Hi @johnelex, could you clarify exactly what happens when the Dropbox desktop application loads on your device?

Are you using a Windows or a Mac device?

Any other info or screenshots would be helpful!
