PC backup on multiple computers

PC backup on multiple computers

Hi, I just started using the PC backup feature and I was wondering if its possible to set that up on multiple computers. What happens if I do, as in, how will Dropbox distinguish one PC from another? Right now I only have my laptop set up for backup and the folder is only labeled "PC" within Dropbox. How would I know what files are from my laptop and which ones are from the desktop that I want to setup?

Thank you.

The Computer Backup feature will create a separate folder for each PC.
