I do not understand how you could sync things correctly if time can be relative between computers.


I can't back this up with hard facts, but I would think that the Dropbox client software synchronises/keeps track of its own time (with the Dropbox servers) before syncing.


I do know that when Dropbox sees a discrepancy in date/time stamps it creates the filename + computer name it came from.
