I enabled smart sync thinking it would be easier for me to find files and work on it. I spent over a day letting DropBox sync the files to completion. Over 500,000 files.
Now that it was done, I try to open any file, it takes ages. Even if the file itself is tiny.
Also, I notice that it keep resyncing the half million files randomly when ever I see the app.
@Daphne thank you for your response. I have tried to put answers where I can.
In adddition to the above, this evening I get this email saying:
You recently deleted 434692 files from your Dropbox account. If you want these files back, you can still restore them until 9/8/2019. After that, they’ll be permanently deleted.
These are the files you deleted:
I am now having nightmares that backups from years may be lost. How do I go through these files?
Also, I still see the syncing is still going on.
In hindsight, Smart Sync is definitely anything but smart. Maybe the biggest mistake I've made EVER of my file storage and back-up life. And I have files going back 20 years.
