I have tried

1-Fix permissions
2-Fix hard links
3-Reset file system warning options
4-Restarted the app many times
5-uninstalled and reinstall many times
6- tried both local and online view only many times

No firewall or antivirus activated.

My account works very well with my old device.

I have NBN internet and very fast. checked the speed and it is very good. Download 95 mbps , upload 40 mbps.

Windows is updated.

Dropbox is the latest version. 

the device is Microsoft surface running windows 10 pro.

PLEASE HELP

What does it say when you hover your cursor over the Dropbox icon in your system tray?

Within Selective Sync, all the folders that you want to sync to the computer are checked?
