Hi all, please help. 

I moved my Dropbox folder and now when I try to open a file from File Explorer it says 'directory name is invalid'. Using Windows 10.

Can anyone let me know how to rectify?

Many thanks

James

OK, seems to have fixed itself! Restarted dropbox, still didn't work. Tried again after posting this thread, suddenly all files open without the error.

A few of my files had the same issue and I just cut and pasted them within the same folder and that fixed it 

Need more support?
