If files already exist in the Morro share or Dropbox folder, it may take some time for the initial sync to complete.

You can use the Dropbox app to share files with your friends, customers and partners.

Note: Files must be added to the folder corresponding to the share name.  Files placed in the top level folder "Morro Echo" will not be synced to the Morro Global File System.
