Sending, editing and starring files across computers.

New member | Level 2

I have created four dropbox accounts on my different PCs.  I have to send daily some particular files to one PC and this is so for other PCs also.  When I send a file to another PC, the older file should be replaced by a new one. The file I send to a particular PC is the same file. I don't want to send a file through an email. I want to upload the file to a particular account and also want that the older file is replaced by the new one. Also, let me know the advantage of starring a file. I don't want any conflicted copy of the file.

Re: Sending files to different PCs.


Thank you for creating a topic @Bimal

Happy to answer your first questions in our Community. nerd face

  • Sending a file to your other PC. Dropbox can sync your files across your devices via the Dropbox desktop app. No reason to upload your files in an email. Just drop them in your local Dropbox folder and if the other PC is connected to the same Dropbox account, your files will sync and show to the other device. Let me know if you need me to walk you through the installation or the upload of your files. 
  • Replacing a file in Dropbox. If you edit the file inside your Dropbox folder the update/edition of the file will create a new version of the same file. Check out all the Dropbox integrations that can help you edit your files directly in Dropbox.  
  • Staring a file. When you star a file this makes it a "favorite" file lets say. The file gets listed in the starred tab for your convenience. dividers More info about this here
