  • Streaming sync speeds up syncing for larger files. As a large file is uploaded to our servers, other desktop clients with access to that file will begin downloading the file in the background. This makes large files sync faster between your computers using the same Dropbox account as well as in shared folders. To disable the "Move to Dropbox" context menu first quit Dropbox. Then, run the following command in a terminal...
  • Windows: `%APPDATA%\Dropbox\bin\Dropbox --move-to-dropbox=False`
  • Linux: `~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd --move-to-dropbox=False`
  • OS X: `/Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/MacOS/Dropbox --move-to-dropbox=False`
