How can I make sure my Smart Sync settings are not applied to other devices?

How can I make sure my Smart Sync settings are not applied to other devices?

Hi,

I have a desktop and laptop I use to manage and edit pictures. On my desktop I have alot of storage space, where I save all my photos and backup to Dropbox. My laptop have limited storage space, and Im wondering If I can make my dropbox folders online only - only on the laptop, and not on the desktop? Because on the desktop I still wish to have the files local, but on the laptop I only wish to download the files Im currently working on. Is there some guide to help me do this, if possible?

Hey @PilloW, thanks for checking in with us - welcome aboard!

The Smart Sync feature is device-specific, which means that whatever you choose to make online-only on your laptop won't be applied on your desktop computer. 

You can find more info about Smart Sync and how to use it here

Let me know if you have any other questions!
