How to Pause and Resume Syncing from Dropbox on Mac OS X?

Dropbox is useful to sync and backup photos, videos and files to the cloud to access and share them with family and friends. After backing up photos, vidoes and file, you can pause syncing from Dropbox. Whenever you want to sync photos and videos again, you can resume syncing from Dropbox. When syncing is active, Dropbox will use any remaining bandwidth available to download changes and only 75% of available bandwidth to upload changes. You just need to adjust your bandwidth usage through the Dropbox Desktop Application.

Here are the steps to Pause and Resume Syncing from Dropbox on Mac OS X:

  1. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/ & sign in to your account.
  2. Download and install "Dropbox Desktop Application" on your Mac OS X.
  3. Click "Dropbox" icon from your menu bar.
  4. Click "Gear" icon.
  5. Select "Pause Syncing" from the menu.
  6. A "Pause" icon overlay will appear on the Dropbox menu indicating that syncing has paused.
  7. You can come back here to Resume syncing when you are ready for Dropbox to resume.
