These were well written instructions. The use of bold and italics really helped with figuring out what was important. Also, letting the reader know that your instructions will not cover certain options is important, nice detail with that. Nice use of the images and the amount of text was not overwhelming.

I have to say i'm not comfortable with the idea of turning instructables into another "software tutorials" website .. i'm afraid that the site is gonna get polluted into a messy swamp of information that will degrade the quality of this awesome place :(

There is too much software and if tutorials about it should be on instructables.com i think it would be best for that to be in a distinct place, something like "software.instructables.com" with its own index and search different from the content on "traditional" instructables.com

However i am a developer and poweruser and practically i breathe software so maybe i'm biased on the idea of seeing something i really love getting turned into another "point this and click that to do what you could have known already if you bothered to rtfm".

I hope my ranting didn't bother anyone but there are very few places that provide content and a community like we have here and plenty other places with also high quality content and great communities for everything software-related.

I appreciated that you included the piece about knowing whether or not the Dropbox had actually synced and was up to date. Although I already have a Dropbox, I found myself checking it on two different devices to make sure everything transfered.

The instructions are clear and thorough. The use of pictures was also very helpful. It's a little bit lengthy, but it is understandable.

Nice job with the instructions! For uploading files, it may be helpful to also illustrate how files can be uploaded via the internet, such as in the case if an individual does not have Dropbox installed on the computer. Efficient use of the image space.
