I uploaded a file that was 140Go by simply copying into my Dropbox folder and waiting for it to sync. It took about 5 days as I have 100Mbs on the download but 10Mbs on the upload only with my Spectrum connection.
Now I wanted to save space on my computer and switched it to "Online-only" but it's been two days and it still says "Downloading filename"...
How long am I supposed to wait? If I knew I would have to do the same thing twice, I would have selected "Always upload online-only" from the beginning... I thought that once it is synced on the Dropbox folder, it wouldn't take too long to switch to Online-only...
Thank you for your help.
Thanks for your reply. It STILL says "Downloading the file"... And it's been five days nonstop!
Now this has taken more time than when I was uploading the file... At least before it said where it was at like "120 Gb left etc..." but now it doesn't say anything.
Restarting my computer?? Wouldn't that ruin the progress and start everything from scratch?
If you confirm that it won't, then I'll go ahead and try that right now!
Thanks for your help
I tried restarting my computer but it STILL doesn't change the status.
Still saying "Downloading the file" and it has been over 8 days now. Something is wrong I think...
I am SO over this. Dropbox has been giving me headache after headache these last couple days... I need to upload another file urgently and I can't because I don't have space on my laptop and I still can't get this file "Online-only" which would clear up 150 Go from my laptop... SO annoying!!!
Thank you, I talked to somebody on the Dropbox specialized team, they seem to have fixed it because the file seems to finally have switched to online-only.
