Dropbox business not syncing properly

Explorer | Level 3

We use Dropbox business, but regardless of whether I open my folders from the desktop og from the web, files are not synced properly.

In the desktop, it´s all green and looks like it should be synced. 

This issue is seriously slowing down our work flow, and I am missing out on important information, because I am not up to date.

 

I work in windows 10, and I have tried following the 13 steps in the help guide to solve the issue without any luck. 

 

I have deleted the desktop app, but it still doesn´t work.

 

Please help me out here, as it´s hindering me doing my job.

Thanks

Ed,

I have a business account on Windows 10 and enter Admin whilst signed into the business account (the icon in Top RH corner shows business account) however; when I go to the Contact Us page I'm always signed in with my personal account, whether or not my personal account is signed in, and am not given the Chat option - any ideas?

Hey there @DerekGCWhite - sorry to hear about this.

I was just wondering if you notice the same behavior after clearing your browser's cache and/or on an incognito window.

If those don't help at all, please try a completely different browser other than you originally used making sure you're logging into your Business account.

Let me know how it goes and we'll take it from there!

I attempted the Incognito route and was asked to sign-in, that does not appear to have given me access to the Chat

Does that give you some indication as to what might have been the problem?

Not really Derek - sorry.

At this point, could you please submit a ticket through our Official Channels and let me know the ticket's ID (a 7 digit number) here so I can locate it on our system and get on it asap? 

You can log a ticket through this page:  https://www.dropbox.com/support

Let me know the ticket's ID when you get the chance and I'll make sure to follow up accordingly.

In the background I've been chatting with support and it appears my business account has becomes confused.
I have unlinked and re-linked my account which has definitely cleared the Chat problem however; it has also copied my Local file to an .old file and started from scratch so all the local updates I have made in the last few weeks have to be re-applied

Ho hum, well at least I now have a working system so thanks for your assistance

Glad to hear you've managed to resolve this in the end Derek - thanks for the update too!

If you ever stumble upon an issue in the future, please feel free to start a new discussion following this link: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Help-from-the-Community/ct-p/101001000

Have a lovely weekend!

PS: If you chose your new Dropbox folder to be in the same location as your existing one, by clicking on 'Install', this renamed the existing Dropbox folder to 'Dropbox (Old)' and created a new Dropbox folder for the account you’re currently linking.
