Although I see Green marks the folders are not synced

Although I see Green marks the folders are not synced

New member | Level 2

I have two iMacs, one in the office and one at home, I want to sync a hard drive with my data so I can work in both places. I put all my data files in a Dropbox folder in a drive in my office (806,3 GB) and I synced it with a folder at home. when sync completed (after some days) the second folder is 710,9 GB. I restarted both computers, restarted both dropbox, nothing, the sync has stopped and it says up to date, although the office imac still has 22 GB to upload and is uploading. I thought I would feel safe with Dropbox, now I am afraid I will loose some of my files.

thank you

Hi there @mmorfeas; welcome to our Community!

 

It sounds like one of your computers hasn't finished syncing yet.

 

Could you tell me the desktop app's exact status as shown in your menu bar on both machines? 

 

Thanks!
