Trying to upload the same file for the last hour now. Uploaded to a recipient’s Dropbox, never got confirmation it was a successful upload. Tried just uploading it to my Dropbox and sharing from there, also never got confirmation the upload was successful. And the file’s not there. Do confirmations exist? What am I missing? Am I supposed to just wait til my laptop falls asleep?
If, on one hand, you're using the website to upload files, you should be getting a message to inform you about the successful upload on your screen.
If, on the other hand, you're using the desktop app and copying or moving files into your Dropbox folder, you should check its status as shown within your computer's system tray/menu bar. Once you're fully synced, it should show 'Up to date'.
Hi, I was attempting to upload some files to a shared folder however the upload was taking too long, I did attempt a few times however shut it each time because of how long it was taking. I then compressed the files and tried again and it worked. I then however received emails from dropbox saying all the previous attempts had been uploaded also despite me closing the windows and not waiting. Please can anyone confirm if all uploads will have gone through? Or just the final one which actually fully uploaded and I waited until it had all gone through. Thanks in advance!
