iMac sharing to dropbox

iMac sharing to dropbox

Hello all, I am currently using a iMac with 500gb storage and in the past sharing all my folders with home sales docs inside. I use the app on my iPhone to quickly view details when not at my desk. Seams simple right, lol nothing ever is when your technically challenged.. I would prefer to store the folders not share the folders in dropbox so that I can delete from my desktop not to have a storage issue on my iMac. In the past I do not believe I was using dropbox as a back up now now it appears to be set up this way. I would love some assistance of the best settings for my needs. Much appreciated. Stacy

Hey @Dreger Realty, thanks for taking the time to post here today.

 

Would you mind clarifying if you're referring to files that you've added to your Dropbox folder manually, in order to add them to your account, or if you're using our backup feature?

 

If your goal is to save up some hard drive space, you can actually use our selective sync feature, or make your files online-only.

 

Let me know how it goes!

Thanks for some direction. That does give me a better understanding of the lingo and how it works. I will continue to be more proficient.
