I have been using Dropbox for a few years; however, I just started having this problem (literally, today). When I delete anything (folder with files or just files), it reappears, sometimes instantly, sometimes later (15-30 minutes). I have researched this ad nauseum, and have done everything that has been recommended on this forum, as well as other recommendations on Google, and NOTHING has worked. Does anybody have anything that might actually work?
Hey @Shilo, sorry to be jumping in here, but could you take a look at the version history of a sample file of the ones that are coming back to see which exact device and/or user is adding them back to your account?
If you find it, please try deleting those files from that specific device.
Hello...yes, I deleted locally. I work with numerous Excel files daily, and the ones I deleted I had already copied to another location in SharePoint (my employer prefers this), so I don't need it in my Dropbox any longer, although, personally, I prefer to work with Dropbox for active files because I always have syncing issues with SharePoint. There are files that just need to be stored in SharePoint when I am done with them, but they no longer need to be in my Dropbox.
