Hi guys,

As you know when you install Dropbox, a folder is created in which anything placed into the folder is uploaded to Dropbox. Does anyone know if there is a way to configure Dropbox so that anything placed into that folder is both saved locally AND uploaded to Dropbox? I keep finding that if my internet is slow it can take a while for my Dropbox folder to load.

Thanks for any help

Dropbox stores its files locally and online, thus even without internet connection you can access its contents, that has at least been my experience with my two Macs when not online.

That is a local Folder; ie, it is on your Mac. You can put stuff in there when not connected to the net, and Dropbox will sync it next time you connect.
