Issue with setting Selective sync

Issue with setting Selective sync

Today I experience an Issue with setting Selective sync.

I want to check my settings for Selective sync and adjust something.

When I open it on the dropbox app on my PC, all my folders are marked, instead of only the few that are actually being synced.

 

Do I have to redo all my settings?!

Hi @MarcusGiraff, thanks for posting today! 

If all of your folders are checked, that means that they should all be syncing to the device.

Do you not see some of the folders syncing inside your Dropbox folder?

As for the selective sync settings, you're right, you would need to re-adjust them. 

Keep me posted.

Hi,

I have been using the same settings for selected folders for a long time, and they are correctly synced.

It is a fraction of the folders I have on Dropbox. Now that I wanted to make a small adjustment, I see that all the folders are marked in the app on my PC. That is why I wonder if I have to change all the settings for "the selective sync" or if there is a way to have the selected folders marked in the app on my PC.

Best regards

Marcus Wendin

You would need to uncheck any folders that you do not want to sync to the device. 

Then, once you hit apply on the settings, you should be set. 

If you have any other questions, let me know, @MarcusGiraff.
