Currently using this version and I've paused Dropbox so I can do a large scale rearrange of directories etc.
After pausing it I went to the Dropbox website and removed a share which has then propagated to my machine (notification on screen saying its been removed and when I go to the directory its been deleted).
Obviously the pause isnt quite working as the client was paused and so it shouldnt be doing things via Dropbox.
Since posting this I've been waiting for Dropbox to reindex. Its now 48 hours later and its reduced from about 267,000 files to 257,500. Its 'to upload' and 'to download' list are increasing (its added 4,800 to upload which it didnt have 12 hours ago). However, its beyond slow :(
Subject says it all... I have been fighting this problem for 10 days and tried ALL solutions listed in the forums and help areas. I uninstalled and reinstalled a minimum of 30x with online, offline, and advanced methods. I also gave dropbox administrative permissions and tried installing older versions as well as the 27.xx version....No luck..and gained a few gray hairs in the process. In order to help others who are stuck just like me, try this: Start>All Programs>Dropbox> right click the Dropbox icon> Properties>Compatibility> Select run this program in compatibility mode for> Select Windows Vista> Click Apply> Click ok>Launch dropbox via the icon. Do NOT select Win XP or you will get an error as Dropbox does not support it anymore. The above solution worked for me! I think a Win7 update did something Dropbox doesn't like as it has been working flawlessly for me for years(other than when DB dropped XP support).
