If you have a Dropbox Plus, Family, Professional, or Business account, you can prioritize a file to sync ahead of others syncing with the Dropbox app on your computer.
Note: You can’t prioritize folders or package files.
While a file is syncing you can prioritize it in the queue:
- Open Finder (Mac) or File Explorer (Windows) and then click your Dropbox folder.
- Drag and drop the file you want to sync into your Dropbox folder.
- While you see the blue syncing icon on it, right click on the file and select Sync Now.
- That file will prioritize over all files that you haven't selected to Sync Now.
Note: If you create a shared link to a file, it will automatically be added to the queue of the prioritized files.
