Dropbox Finally Implements Selective Sync

Dropbox, my favorite file syncing service has finally implemented selective file sync in a the latest release candidate build. This is awesome for those of us who’ve bought a premium account with lots of space! Previously any folders in your Dropbox were synced to all your computers. This meant for instance my 8GB of music would be synced to any virtual machine I linked to my Dropbox which is a waste of space and bandwidth. Now I can chose just one or two folders to sync which is what I’ve already done on my Ubuntu VM. This will be a very useful feature for Netbooks with small hard drives and all sorts of portable devices.

So far it’s worked without issue on my Mac and Linux machines. Have you tried selective sync yet?
