Hi I recently had a full reinstall of my system. Since then Dropbox has been syncing constantly. 220 files upload, 4596 download. The numbers change slightly as I use a file but in over a week they have not really changed. Within my folder/file structure in Dropbox I can see which ones have the sync icon. As far as the system allows me I have selected Smartsync and Online only. However the files that have the syncing icon will not let me set that. I want to use Dropbox as a cloud storage service and just access files as required from my PC, tablet and phone. I do not want the files stored anywhere apart from Dropbox. So I don't really see what it is with syncing with as the files should only be in one place.
The Dropbox icon on the bottom right bar says it is 153MB that is syncing and I have decent broadband width which is working fine.
Hi Hannah. No change. I had tried some of the solutions and have just done things like turning Norton 360 off. The upload number has increased a bit over the week but has stuck at 220 for a while. The download is static at 4597 files. I cannot see any error messages. To me it looks like it is OK except that it is stuck.
