I have a number of folders set as "Make available offline" on my iPad. Generally this works fine, but sometimes I get the yellow exclamation mark icon and "Refresh to update". Can someone please tell me what "Refresh to update" means - there is no refresh button and no refresh option in the menu. What am I supposed to do???
I just find out that for dropbox version 142.2, you can refresh by going to Account --> Manage Offline Files --> on the top right hand coner, there is a refresh logo.
My question is... When it says "Refresh to update", what am I supposed to do? How do I refresh? Everything is connected OK (I used Dropbox to transfer the attached pic from iPad to PC).
If I kill the app, and then reload it, the yellow icons become blue for a few seconds and display the message "Determining which...", and then go yellow again.
I am on my home wifi network, which works fine. I tried connecting via my iPhone hotspot, and exactly the same thing happened - a few seconds of blue, then back to yellow. What I do not understand is... the app clearly says "Refresh to update", so clearly I am supposed to do something. The verb is "refresh". How do I do it? What am I supposed to do? How do I "refresh"?
It's 2019, and dropbox still can't do the one thing it is suppose to do - sync your file. Come on guys this is an unacceptable situation. Most of my offline files say "refresh to update". Finding the nearly hidden refresh button does nothing!!! Please.
