How to access more KRC folders from dropbox

To prevent computer overload (it seems to get overloaded when too many files are synced), we have only essential folders synced to each staff. For example, HAP staff are synced to Inbox, General, HAP, Others, and Staff. IRP staff are synced to Inbox, General, IRP, Others and Staff.

To add more folders to your computer:

  1. Find the Dropbox icon on your computer's taskbar (bottom right corner). It may be hidden, so click the >> icon to reveal it.
  2. Right click on the Dropbox icon
  3. Preferences -> Advanced -> Selective Sync
  4. If you can only see the top level folders (0 General, 1 Health, etc) and can't open individual folders inside each top level folder, click the "Advanced View" button on the bottom left of the window
  5. Check additional boxes, and select "Update"
  6. Your new folders will be downloaded to your computer in 30-90 minutes, depending on how large it is. (It will download them from the KRC Fileserver within the network, so it should be pretty fast)

Installing Dropbox

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is a program that syncs files across computers. It creates a folder on your My documents folder, named "Dropbox", and syncs files so that all your Dropbox files are the same across all computers that have Dropbox installed and logged in with the same account.
