I am using a 2017 MacBook Pro 15 with macOS High Sierra version 10.13.4. Our company plan is Dropbox Business Advanced. I have Dropbox v51.4.66 App installed. I also have a personal Dropbox account.
For business use I have multiple directories checked Local for SmartSync that do not sync locally. I cannot access the files to work locally without internet connectivity. Only after I attempt to access a file when I am online does it sync (to me this means download to my mac).
The behavior I though was implied is that the files would sync locally, in the background, when I was online. How can this be achieved without manually open each file?
This only takes you to a link to USE Smart Sync. I am trying to turn it OFF, and I cannot find that info anywhere. Do I have to uninstall and reinstall again?? I cannot preview any documents on my Desktop, which is CRUCIAL for my business. I can't find any reason why that is happening except the use of Smart Sync.
No need to reinstall. Setting all your files to local as well as changing the default desktop smart sync setting, as advised here, would be the solution. I also wanted to add another Community discussion we had about this here. I am sure it will answer a lot of questions on the matter.
