It can store a copy on the server and sync in every computer which has been installed the software. The Dropbox download URL is: 2. Operation I installed the Dropbox software. It will add a directory on the local drive. The Dropbox directory's content will automatically sync. If I can moved the IE's Favorite folder to this directory. It will be OK to sync my Favorites.

Restart your browser, it will be done. 3. Result Now I installed the Dropbox at every computer I use. And change the Favorites folder to Dropbox directory. It is OK.
