You must now create a schedule to maintain
synchronization of the "My memories" folder with your mobile devices:
Launch WinSynchro from the icon on your desktop or from the Windows
Start menu. If the window opens in compact mode click on the Advanced mode
button then open the planning tab
Click New. With the first Browse button, select your
"My Memories" folder then with the second Browse button, select its image folder
in the DropBox folder. Checkboxes should match the image below:
The periodicity can be adjusted according to your
needs. A value of 10 Minutes is correct, shorter is unnecessary. You can choose
a much larger value if you rarely edit these documents.
click on save. Then close the window.
Your "My Memories" folder is now synchronized and its
content is regularly updated. You can edit a file on your computer or on one of
your mobile devices. The change is reflected in both directions. You can add
files. You can do the same for other folders that you would like to sync.
If you want to be able to edit your files
on all your devices, they must be saved in a format that is compatible with all
of them. Some file formats are managed directly by DropBox and can be opened
directly (photos, sounds, plain text files ...). For others there is always an
app available to install from the store of the device. When a file available in
your folder must be opened by a third-party application for reading and writing,
you must first click on the menu to the right of this file and activate Make
this file accessible offline otherwise you will not be able to modify it. For
text files you can of course use plain text files in .txt format. But you will
probably prefer the .docx (Word), .xslx (Exel), .pptx (Powerpoint) formats which
you are probably already using on your computer.
For the deletion of synchronized files, refer to the
Deleting synchronized files
You can now read and write your "My Memories" folder from your phone or
tablet. If your computer is off you always have access to the latest updated
version of your files. Your "My Memories" folder will be updated when your
computer is turned on.
