    Hi All.

    Since upgrading to ICS the Dropbox sync in Settings is greyed out.

    How do I get this to sync?

    Thanks.

    I may be wrong, but I don't think dropbox does any syncing. Did dropbox ever sync for you ?

    Well it does camera uploads, though it's not technically a true sync since it doesn't automatically pull stuff down to the phone. That has to be done manually.

    Good question.
    I think it did.
    I think it should.
    It's supposed to upload changes I make to it on my phone, from what I understand.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    well, if it makes you fell any better, on my Ics rezound phone, under settings accounts the dropbox sync icon also does nothing.

    That's only for the instant camera uploads. So, like when you take a picture or video on your phone it will automatically upload to your Dropbox. Dropbox only syncs when you open it up, and I don't believe it syncs in the background unless you make changes to a file in your dropbox.

    Yeah, ok....there's no background sync I suppose. To sync or not to sync, that is the question:happy3:

    Again, it's not true sync, since files are saved offline (in the cloud) if uploaded from another source than your phone. The main screen on the phone has a star selection which lets you choose certain offline files to be saved locally for offline use. If it was a true sync, what would be in the cloud would also be on the phone at all times. This would also mean the phone's memory could easily be overrun by uploading large files to your Dropbox account from a desktop PC. Personally, that would be a reason to not want syncing.

    FWIW, have you tried Box.com? It's everything Dropbox is and I have 50GB FREE. It's desktop tray application also has a screen capture utility built in, and dumps the url for the captured images right into your clipboard, ready to paste into a posting.

    :D
