Dropbox is not updating the most recent version of a modified file

Dropbox is not updating the most recent version of a modified file

If I add some text/numbers into an existing excel file, and save it, the newly saved file is not updating in Dropbox.

 

How do I work the sync correctly show it always updates to the most recent version of any given file that has been modified?

Hi @Exjarhead; welcome to the Community!

 

Any changes you make on your Dropbox files should be synced across your connected devices and our website as well; assuming that the desktop app is running and syncing on your computer that is. 

 

Could you take a look at your system tray/menu bar and let me know what the app reports there? 

 

Thanks!
