Will files I put in Dropbox be synced across other machines even if they're offline?

Computers that were offline (disconnected or powered off) when files were changed on another computer will automatically receive the most recent changes to files (and send any of their own updates) as soon as they reconnect to the Dropbox service via the Internet.

You also don't have to worry about shutting down Dropbox while a sync is in progress. It will simply resume where it left off once your computer is back online.
