I have used Dropbox for years and it has always been very easy to use. I recently went to do some reorganizing and downloaded the app onto a computer that didn't have DB. It automatically backed up the computer (not the whole thing, there were at least 50 gigs of info so it apparently picked 2 GBs? I don't know), and then when I went to delete files off of DB online, it deleted them off of my PC. I swam around in the app and online trying to figure out how to unsync the PC so that I could delete files on DB I don't want but couldn't figure it out so I just deleted my account completely.
I am a prof and I work on multiple computers but need access to the same files on each computer. I was able to do this a few years ago at a different job and it worked seamlessly: DB would let me download the app to multiple computers and select certain folders or documents I wanted on DB and I could get access to those folders/documents on either computer (as could my clients and colleagues when I shared) but now that doesn't seem to be the case?
I only want to use this DP account for my school documents so that I can access them in real-time from my office or my home computers. Is this even possible any more? If not, I will be looking for a new cloud app, which is a shame.
