Hello @Holmdal, I hope you're well today!

 

So I can have a better understanding of the issue that you're having with this, can you clarify what steps you're taking at the moment to copy the data from Dropbox? A step-by-step guide of your steps would be helpful.

 

Also, are you copying the files from the local Dropbox folder on your computer? If so, are all your files synced locally, or are some online only with Smart Sync?

 

Finally, do the folders that are appearing empty after being copied show files/folders within them in the original location you're copying from?

 

Let me know and we can go from there!
