Switched to a MacBook with the M1 (Big Sur 11.4, Dropbox V126.4.4618). I am experiencing extremely slow sync rates.
- Rebooting the machine
- Rebooting the router
- un/reinstalling dropbox
Still taking days to sync file - basically it's in a perpetual sync mode. It no longer shows how many files, or estimated time - just "Syncing"
WiFi transfer rates at 5 - 8.5kbs
I can't track down the offending files. I'll find a folder with the blue sync symbol, but no file in the folder has the symbol.
I'm open to advice!
I thought that the advice had done the trick. Then this happened.
I uploaded a 30G .zip file. It went into the DB folder quickly - only about 20mins to upload. Then DB started "Syncing" and 48hrs later still reporting 2 more days required to sync.
I'd upload a screen grab but I can't see how in a reply
I'm having a similar problem. I reset the hard links and permissions but ... it is still going very slowly. Any other ideas what to try here? I have been using the Dropbox app on my desktop M1 Mac and have not had this problem until yesterday.
Thank you for your help!
