Reduce your internet Dropbox bandwidth using `Selective Sync`

When we use Dropbox, with large files, synchronization between the client and server is quite slow. Dropbox now supports storage on server without synchronization on client, i.e. we can choose which files/folders to be synchronized.

First right click icon dropbox in system tray, select click `Preferences…`


Then, select ` Advanced` and click button `Selective Sync…`


Then, uncheck those folders that you don’t want to sync to client and click button `Update` to finish.


Hope that helps!

My suggestion for new features in Dropbox

  1. A Windows 7 look-alike search box which helps me easily find a Dropbox option
  2. Allow me to filter which sub folders of a Dropbox folder can be synced/not-synced
  3. Allow me to delete permanently all of the deleted files/folders – the ones that are hidden and at the moment, I have to delete them manually
  4. (To be updated)

A new way to share-then-edit your photos/albums quickly & easily using Dropbox

Hi guys,

You are using Facebook to share your photos – great & lots of people are doing that but your photos are automatically compressed; i.e. later if you wanna print your uploaded photos, you can’t have a high resolution/suitable version for printing (the printed photos will be ugly)

Then, I use Picasa to keep the photos in full resolution. The tagging, face-detection, sharing, commenting, etc… are cool but the usability of web UI and the Picasa desktop version are not my favour usage at old. Just try to move a photo from one album to another one or try to rotate an image, you will find how boring Picasa design is!

Today, I come up with a new way to share photos with my wife: using Photos folder in our Dropbox! We can move photos among albums as easy as we move files among fodlers. We can edit/add-effects to those image by the way we get used to right in our PC – no other website, no other new software to learn! Dropbox has bring us that new easy & happy photo sharing to us!

Hope it is helpful for you as it is now for me! Join with me on dropbox!
