Dropbox pins down my pc for the first 5 mins of booting!
Hello to all.
I have an old pc, ACER TRAVELMATE 4070, just formatted and dual boot with win8 and Ubuntu 12.04 .
When the dropbox is activated and synchronize on my linux system it pins down my pc for the first 5 mins... the hard drive works like crazy and everything is slow down till the synchronization finish.
Even the dropbox folder doesn't have any changes from the last boot! The same procedure on windows boot takes about a min with no significant delay.
I find this strange since the linux system is by far more stable and fast except this little part. Any one has the same experience and any solution?
Thank you for your replies!
