How to enable seperate folders for download in different computers

Hi All,

 

I have a personal paid account and use multiple computers in the lab and at home. Is it possible to partially download dropbox folders in work computers? I have data folders with research papers that I want to dowload to only work machines. I don't want to sync all folders when I connect my dropbox. How should I do that? 

 

Thanks in advance and sorry if this was a disscussed topic (first time hereslightly smiling face)

 

Best wishes,

Hey @4020, welcome to our community! 

We have a feature called Selective Sync. Using our desktop application, you can choose which folders you want to have synced and available on each computer! Take a look at this info, and let me know if you have any questions.

Dear Sanchez,

 

Here's the issue I have a lap top with SSD drive (C) and regular hard drive (D). All software is installed in C and dropbox automatically installs itself there. However, SSD Drive is limited and I want Dropbpx folder to be in D. 

 

How can I do that? Thanks in advance.

 

Best,

Hey @4020

Sorry for the late reply. 

In short, yes, you can move the Dropbox folder to your D: drive using our Desktop application. Take a look at this. It includes instructions for Mac, Windows, and Linux. 

Please let me know how this works out. 
Cheers!
