Yes, on the Chromebook, it is a manual process since, currently, there is no true DropBox application for the Chromebook. However, since it is a Chromebook, and I use it to access cloud-based services, I have very few files stored in it. The vast majority of my files are stored in the cloud where the service exists (i.e. Google Apps and other e-mail systems), so it works OK for me. The files I do keep on the Chromebook are relatively static, reference-type files or temporary data I am going to move somewhere else.
