Dropbox spontaneously marked many files as deleted

Dropbox spontaneously marked many files as deleted

Explorer | Level 3

After I moved to a new interface today some files became deleted. I check some files in new interface then move my mouse and some files in more nested directories become deleted.

 

It's awful. I can't compile my project now. The new interface is intuitively unintelligible (in compare to the old one). I don't have to randomly move my files when I work outside my operational system. It's better to make the process of moving with more feedback (questions) to user.

 

And another bad thing: files and folders become deleted and now dropbox notify me that it can't sync some folders because they are not empty. But the program dropped absent files from disk by itself leaving some of them!
