You seem to have 2 questions there. Doktoro Reichard has kindly furnished you with the answer to one, this ought to fix the other… Set hot corners. Push the cursor to that corner & it won't nod off. That would save you having to change the regular policy, for the times you do want it to sleep after being idle.

I haven't tested this and I'm reciting this mostly from memory but it should work. Keep a backup of your files if this doesn't work. Place the files to be uploaded inside a folder on the Dropbox folder Dropbox will now upload the files. When Dropbox finishes, go to the options menu and enable Selective Sync, disabling the folder you uploaded from syncing. ...

I agree with Alcafly. I've never personally experienced this issue (across thousands of computers) with DropBox whenever I've manually disallowed it from running on startup. If your using a 3rd party application to control the startup process then I suggest using MSCONFIG to completely disable (DropBox's) control over automatically starting. This should also ...

I know if you disable Dropbox startup on launch in the registry using an editor - C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu\Programs\Startup It just overwrites this change when Dropbox next runs. You have to actually change the setting in Dropbox preferences to stop it overwriting. Maybe this is effecting the Startup Delayer? Maybe if ...

You will see it syncing 145,000. What Dropbox is doing is verifying that the file chunks match the file hash on the Dropbox servers. Dropbox doesn't know if these new files are identical, so it has to go through the process of scanning the entire file contents, getting a hash of it, and comparing it to that of the Dropbox servers. There is no way to get ...

It's possible that this functionality is now deprecated (or at least not available for free users). Please note: We have a new, better way to share links to files and folders from anywhere in your Dropbox! Now all you need to do is select Share link from your computer, phone, or tablet. Quickly share anything with friends and colleagues—even if they don’t ...

@ge0rdi's comment is correct -- the files are decrypted before Dropbox sees them, so Dropbox uploads only the decrypted files and no one else sharing the files will be affected. Here's another reference on Microsoft's website: ...

User B must have at least Read access to the overall Dropbox folder itself - which you must have done to even see in there. He then needs Read/write access to the sub-folder & the file inside that. Having read/write to the file but not the enclosing folder will give the error you're seeing. Every time you create a new file with User A, you will need ...

I realize this answer comes pretty late, but perhaps it will help others who land here. If you get another iOS device, you can restore the 1Password backup on that iOS device. That backup format is not currently compatible with the Windows version of 1Password, unfortunately. It is compatible with 1Password for Mac, however, so if you have a Mac and can ...

Run your batch using RoboCopy. It will try more often and the access denied, if it is caused by Dropbox using the file, will eventually release it. Even with RoboCopy, Dropbox will sometimes hold files in use even after not reading it, so your mileage may vary. You may need to use a tool such as handle to close the handle a process is using to keep the file ...

On Mac OS X with version 3.2.6 of DropBox you can click on the DropBox icon in the system tray. That opens a pull down menu with shows the current file being uploaded and an estimate of time remaining. Interestingly it is not described on this page: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/38

To spend less money, you can try to collaborate with unique Dropbox accounts as long as you observe the 2GB limit for personal accounts. Only one person would need a PRO account or a PERSONAL account with many referrals to boost the total storage. You'd need enough storage to retain the folder contents of everyone you share a folder with (read/write ...

The closest you will get to what you want is using Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive, formerly LiveShare, formerly FolderShare) with WebDAV: You map your OneDrive account as a network drive. There are some other examples I found online, but this is the best written one with good screenshots.

Dropbox uses 'delta sync' which means only modified portions of files are downloaded/uploaded, instead of transferring entire files every time they’re changed. However, the Android app DropSync does not support delta sync. The reason this doesn't work with a TrueCrypt container (or any other encryption program worth it's salt) or some disk imaging solutions ...

Disconnect your hard drive that Dropbox is mapped to but leave the other hard drives in to take up the other drive letters. Right click on computer and click "Map network drive". Map the new drive letter that dropbox has adopted with another location. Even duplicate an existing location if you want. You need to let the computer know that that particular ...

There are a few ways that I'm thinking that can solve your problem. One is by resorting to a third party program which basically does what you want. It will encrypt anything that goes to Dropbox but requires a client to be installed on your system to be able to access your data. ...
