When I check the properties for dropbox it shows file size is 168gb but size on disc is 42MB
As I often work with laptop in remote area without internet i need to have dropbox files stored on hard drive.
with internet connection files all appear ok
the problem only appears to be files will not download to hard drive
hovering over dropbox icon shows dropbox is up to date.
i hope you may be able to assist
Hey Kevin, sorry to jump in here, but do you get the option to set them to be local through the Smart Sync options when you right/control click on your files?
