While sharing a file/folder with another Dropbox user, will that file/folder appear in the other user's Dropbox and sync automatically to the Dropbox folder on his computer?
If that user has set the shared file/folder to sync to their computer then yes, it will stay updated when their dropbox syncs.
Keep in mind, though, that there are many ways that the file/folder could be out of sync:
- Other person hasn't turned on their computer
- Other person hasn't turned on syncing for that file/folder
- Other person has
Dropboxsetup to not auto-sync
- Other person has that file open and
Dropboxcan't update the file because it's in use.
Yes! As long as both the users are connected to the internet, it would work. The sync may not occur if automatically synchronization is disabled on any of the computers.
You need to make sure that you have shared the folder - not a "share link" but rather share folder.
