I'm a DB Pro user.
Dropbox new "SYNC" - I want all files present on all devices - not having to wait for a download or not available if the device is offline. I'll decide with selective what file NOT to be on a device.
I have the option SYNC "OFF" Make new files local & STILL they get downloaded 1 time I reference them.
I just want it to run the old way!
Another enhancement I don't want or need. I Want all files local!
What am I doing wrong?
Not sure what you mean, but if you are using a PC, you can sync all your files local just select all folders in settings. If you say about mobile, you can upgrade your account and you will get sync folder on mobile offline, it give you same experience like pc.
If so, as @Aleksandr M.1 also mentions, you can choose to have new content be local by changing the default Smart Sync setting accordingly.
If we've misunderstood your concern or you have any other questions, don't hesitate to give us a shout. Thanks!
OK thats the answer -
BUT I SHOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO IF I HAD BEEN ASKED IF I EVEN WANTED THE NEW OPTION OF EVERYTHING NOT LOCAL.
Another example of the company NOT giving us an option NOT to turn on an option. I want all the "selective sync folders "LOCAL".
Now it's taking "DAYS" to cleanup this mess.
Thanks again DB. Been a longtime pro user - but I'm getting fed up!
