Add more time options to Pause Syncing dropdown menu

Add more time options to Pause Syncing dropdown menu

I would LOVE the option to pause for 4 or 8 hours or to be able to set the a specific time to resume syncing.

 

I use processor intensive applications on my computer during most of my work day. Dropbox syncing slows down my computer to the point that I often have to pause syncing in order to continue working. With only two options—30 minutes and 1 hour pause times—I have to keep actively selecting Pause Syncing every hour throughout the day. I don't, however, want to stop syncing till the next day because then I risk not having files backed up for several hours after the work day ends.

 

Any chance that this will be updated any time soon?

Many thanks,
Julie
