What is Syncing and How does it Work in Dropbox?

Dropbox allows you to sync and backup photos, videos and files to access them from any mobile phone, computer or tablet. You can easily sync files between all of your computers, mobile phones and tablets. To do this, you need to download and install 'Dropbox Desktop Application' and sign in to Dropbox account using the same login on all of your devices. Once you have installed Dropbox, you can add photos, videos and files to Dropbox folder to automatically sync the file to your Dropbox account. You can open photos, videos and files from any computer, mobile phone or tablet.

Install Dropbox on Your Device:

  1. Download and install "Dropbox" on each computer, mobile phone and tablets which you want to sync with.
  2. You will be prompted to either sign in or create a new account.
  3. Once you have installed Dropbox, you will notice a new "Dropbox" folder on your hard drive.
  4. Add photos, videos and files to your "Dropbox" folder.
  5. Dropbox will automatically watch them and make sure they are in sync. You can now access your files through the Dropbox website.
  6. Once you have installed the application on each of your computers using the same Dropbox login, you will see all your files in the Dropbox folders of those computers as well.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
