Add Smart Sync Options

Add Smart Sync Options

Helpful | Level 7

I think Smart Sync could be improved by increasing how flexible the move to online-only is. Either:

 

a) Set a "last modification" threshold so Smart Sync automatically moves files not modified in the last "x" months online-only to free up space

or

b) Set a maximum Local Dropbox file storage level so that once local storage goes beyond this, the oldest last modified files get moved online only

 

At present Smart Sync gives no indiciation of what threshold or criteria it uses to move files online only, and allowing flexibility in these settings will allow users to manage their local storage more effectively.

I agree. I like option a.

Make it recursive so if I right click and set a folder to "local" all subfolders and all files in the root and subfolders change to "local".  You know, the way it should work anyways. Right now it seems like I'm mising most of my files because I want them on my hard drive but "Not-So-Smart-Link" is just doing whatever it wants even though I turned the feature off and requested the files to be "Local".

I did vote for this! Option "a" preferred.
