Newbie looking for help on Windows 10 folder sync

Newbie looking for help on Windows 10 folder sync

Hi all,

 

I am new to Dropbox and currently using the Basic Plan.  My hope was to use this service to actively sync specific folders on my Win 10 PC, but it appears the only folder choices I'm offered are the typical MS shared folders such as MyDocs, Music, Photos, etc.  Am I correct in assuming that I cannot sync any folders aside from these without an upgraded plan that includes SmartSync?

 

My search for answers on this within Community did not return similar questions, so I'm not sure if this is a really dumb question or just a really old topic... apologies if it's the former and thanks in advance if the latter.  😉

Hi @Sailbound88, welcome to our Community and happy Monday!

When you're using the computer backup feature, you'll get the option to backup your OS folders (Documents, Desktop and Downloads) indeed. 

If you'd like to sync and/or share any other folders from your computer, you can simply copy or move them into your Dropbox folder and let our desktop app sync until it shows 'up to date' in your system tray.

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any follow up questions!
