I uploaded some files but I still see the blue icon on them

Hello - I am uploading many large files to dropbox from my computer. The upload progress bar has finished showing the uploads but the files All still show the blue transfer icon. Is it safe for me to shut down my computer or do the files still need to upload from my computer to dropbox? Does anyone know?

Hello @emaw711, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

It sounds like the files are still being synced across to your account.

 

Just to make sure I have a better visual of what you're seeing though, could you send me a screenshot (without any personal info) of what:

  • You see when you click on the Dropbox icon that's next to your computer's clock?
  • The syncing icons look like currently on your files?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
