Help! I broke the connection between the files in the Dropbox folder on my PC, and Dropbox.com. How do I relink them? They are very large files (36GB)
Sorry, I just don't know what I did to make it happen, coz I was working on both 🙄. But it was probably with my account online.
I did not sign out of my account.
Here is a screenshot of one of the files (STF JOBS) with a grey tick:
And here is inside STF JOBS, all grey ticked
Inside each of these folders are all the relevant folders and files, also all grey ticked. I can open all of them, but I just can't relink them.
Thanks for reaching out to me.
No. They all were green-ticked, which - as far as I understand - shows that they were linked. So if I opened one of the files in File Explorer and changed it, the change would be reflected in the file in the online account too. Is that correct? If not, then what is the difference between green ticks and grey ticks? Coz I'm working on one of the files right now.
Thanks Daphne. That was helpful. I now understand Selective Sync a little better.
Please explain what the white box means (no white tick in blue background) when there is a white tick in a green roundel.
The white box means that I don't see it in File Explorer, but what does the white tick in a green roundel tell me? Is the folder taking up space on my PC?
