And it is not necessary to pause/unpause after every recompilation. I turn
off the sync, then work for an hour or so, then turn it back on. I don’t
need Dropbox to record every change made to the files, it’s enough to have
a backup at significant intervals. If I stop for a coffee break, I turn on
the sync and allow Dropbox to back up.
