Dropbox not updating files
I have found that this process can use up 2-10 percentage points of CPU usage intermittently, depending on the settings used in the setup.This on my high spec PC was no big deal, but may be somewhat annoying on a resource-challenged machine.For more information on these options, go to the instructions page on the program website, scroll to about the middle of the page.08- Dropbox application files: click ‘Download Dropbox files’ to download the latest Dropbox local installation file.Also in this screen: choose a color for the Dropbox icon to differentiate it from your original Dropbox icon in your system tray, in order to tell which is which.5.This option will keep Dropbox from deleting all of your folder contents on the server if it cannot find the folder anymore (because you moved it) and therefore thinks it is blank.If you do check folder protection, you can change the checking interval value if you want, although it is not necessary (lower=more CPU usage but less chance of deletion, higher=less CPU usage but more chance of deletion).Otherwise, keep it checked, especially if the folder is on a removable volume that could accidentally have a different drive letter associated with it across sessions.
Since it is content-agnostic and supports images, audio, videos and scientific markup (via La Te X), the possibilities are endless.
I am assuming that you are reading this post to ADD another Dropbox account to your machine; this step is only necessary if you are converting your already installed Dropbox account to a portable installation using Dropbox Portable AHK. Note that I am assuming that you are reading this post because you want to run another instance of Dropbox on your hard drive, rather than running a portable Dropbox instance from a USB.
Otherwise, click NEXT.06 – Addons: the settings on this page are important. You can assume that settings not explained below should be left as is.
Dropbox folder protection: if you plan to keep your second Dropbox instance in the same folder location on your hard drive, uncheck this.
(The advantage = significantly less of a drain on your PC’s CPU resources).
