You simply right-click the folder and enable syncing with Dropbox. From that moment on, Boxifier picks up any changes you make to that folder and sends them to Dropbox.
No, that is the Boxifier's promise: syncing without moving. Folders stay in place and they are synchronized without having to move or copy them to the Dropbox folder.
We call them boxified folders.
Look for a folder called "Boxifier". All outside folders will be synced as subfolders of that folder.
Look for a folder called “Boxifier” in the Dropbox folder on your other computers running Dropbox. You will find the boxified folder inside that folder.
No need to do that, you only need to install Boxifier on the computer where you boxified the folder.
Yes, all boxified folders get the full functionality of the Dropbox context menu that you know and love.
Absolutely! Pick any folder and Boxifier will make it look, act and feel just like your Dropbox folder.
No. Since they are not copied to the Dropbox folder on the computer that you sync them from, they don’t take extra space.
Boxifier integrates with the Dropbox desktop client so that it works without requiring your Dropbox username or password. It also doesn’t require access to your Dropbox account.
Boxifier is a third party application. Some people are not comfortable giving third party applications access to their Dropbox account. That’s why when building Boxifier we made an effort to make it work without needing access to your Dropbox account. This way you can try Boxifier with no worries. We also sleep better at night because of that.
Yes. Boxifier has built-in protection for this scenario. If you sync a folder from a removable drive and then remove the drive, the contents of that folder will not be removed from your Dropbox.
No, Boxifier won't copy the folder to your computer. It will transfer the contents of your folder from the portable drive directly to your Dropbox account without copying it to the Dropbox folder on your computer.
The basic edition of Boxifier is free. It supports syncing one local folder (up to 2GB) outside of Dropbox. If you need to sync more folders with unlimited size or folders from USB/external/removable drives or network drives you can upgrade to a premium edition.
In the basic edition of Boxifier all premium features are available for you to try for 30 minutes. This way you can see if Boxifier really works before deciding to upgrade. We believe you should purchase a license only if you are completely satisfied with the product. That's how software should work.
