Ok, I hope you aren't afraid of terminal. If so open a terminal and try following commands (will be asked for your password):
sudo chflags -R noschg "/Users/$USER/Dropbox" sudo chflags -R nouchg "/Users/$USER/Dropbox" sudo chown -R "$USER" "/Users/$USER/Dropbox" chmod -R u+rw "/Users/$USER/Dropbox"
I hope this can help. If not, I'm up to here.
PS: @Daphne, don't advertise buggy versions.
What I might suggest to try would be an advanced reinstall of the desktop app, where selective sync settings can be applied upon connecting the app back to the account.
I hope this helps at least to some extent!
No, no, no... of course. There are two completely different cases! What exactly make you think in such a way? Proposed above is just a simplified variant of advanced reinstall - focused on Dropbox directory content.
Thanks for clarifying that @Здравко!
I had seen you actively assisting on that thread recently so I thought you may have been referring to that, nothing to worry about! I understand your previous suggestion, I just wanted to clarify if you had seen any other bugs with the latest stable version that we might have missed here.
I would suggest going ahead with a full advanced reinstall just as the app was able to retain the selective sync settings but not able to apply them.
I hope that clears up my response a little there - thanks!
No problem at all @jnewmark!
We'll be looking forward to hearing how it goes.
Keep us posted - thanks!
