Ways to export SmartSync status and import on another PC?

New member | Level 2

Example:

Say I have the Dropbox client installed on laptop A and have enabled the SmartSync feature. Some of the folders on laptop A are set to online-only mode. Now, when I later install the Dropbox client on a new laptop B, does Dropbox client automatically keep track of which folders are in online-only mode? If not, is there a way to backup/export the "SmartSync status" so I can replicate the SmartSync folder settings on another computer?

Thanks!

Hi @Liang-Chi W. I am afraid currently there is no way to replicate SmartSync settings on different devices. SmartSync setting is unique to each device, and you have to manually set online-only or local/offline folder status on each device.

Thanks! Though this is not a surprise I do hope they'll support it someday.
