We love using Smart Sync for the team, once set up it works exteremly well and replaced our physical file server. We are a digital agency with 15ish Dropbox users (and growing). We have a 'Clients' team folder with all our client work and an 'Internal' team folder with all our internal work. We have between 600,000 - 700,000 files and it takes a VERY long time to sync for new team members, sometimes up to 3 or4 days. Files are set to 'online only' by default. I just transferred to a new laptop via a Time Machine backup and I am also now staring down the barrel of re-syncing everything over multiple days. We set the bandwidth settings to maximum for up and down and we have a very fast connection in the office, although we are in New Zealand so might be far away from the Dropbox server! Is there any way we can make this process faster? Should we consider moving old or out of date work to another team folder not synced to all users? Having the option to prioritise certain folders in the initial sync so team members can get working straight away would be a good feature.
