Adding encryptions to Dropbox

Hi. I recently began using Devonthink for both Mac and iOS, and set it up with Dropbox. However, when I set up my first folder, I didn’t press the option to encrypt the folder. I’m trying to add encryption, but can’t find a way to do it. Is it possible, or do I have to create a new folder? If that’s the case, can I just copy and paste/move folders, or do I have to start all over?

Thanks for your help!

Welcome @ItsMe

To keep things straight:

  • There isn’t a folder. There is a sync store.
  • You must specify an encryption key before syncing.
    If you want to add/remove/modify an encryption key on a sync location, you have to control-click the sync location and choose Clean Location to clear out the sync data. Then control-click the sync location again and choose Show Info. You can then make the change before you sync.

can I just copy and paste/move folders,

What folders?

Note: Assuming you’re referring to DEVONthink 3 public beta, sync is covered in the built-in Help > Documentation > In & Out > Sync. You should review this section (and there’s a lot of good information in the rest of the documentation as well).
