I can't sync files issues on Windows since using Obsidian

I can't sync files issues on Windows since using Obsidian

I have not been able to synchronize files with Dropbox since yesterday. Previously I had synchronized files with Obsidian and an internal plugin. Then it suddenly stopped working. When I upload files manually, it keeps saying that it skips 19 of them. I don't know how to upload these 19 more files. They are no different than any other files. I can't empty the recycle bin. There is no button for it and there is no button to select all the files in it at once. I don't understand how a company that has been around for so long can make such stupid design decisions. I then installed the Windows app and am also overwhelmed here. I activated automatic synchronization and included the desired folder on the PC. Dropbox app says it's synced, but I can't find the synced folder anywhere. Neither online in the browser, nor on the Dropbox folder on the PC.

Hi @garugc, thanks for messaging the Community.

 

Could you clarify what Obsidian is and how you believe this issue happened afterwards?

 

Do you see the files that aren't syncing from within the Dropbox folder on your machine, and do they have blue icons?

 

This will help me to assist further!
