Hi. Besides taking forever to upload 350 GB data, it is not allowing my office files to sync while the data sync is in progress. I have 100 MBps speed. Can I pause sync of data to let office files to sync first?

Files typically sync is order of size, smallest to largest. If you have a paid account and need a particular file to sync first, you can right-click it and select Sync Now.

Thanks mate! Will try that. I no longer have 1 TB hard disk so have to upload from my external hard drive to Dropbox in website. Can it be the reason of slow speed? Saying it will take 5 days to upload the data to DB.
