[LINUX] Newly added folder is not synced

[LINUX] Newly added folder is not synced

tryit
Explorer | Level 4

I have Feodra Workstation 34 and the Dropbox proprietary application.

 

I right clicked on the taskbar icon -> preferences -> sync -> selective sync and I added a folder.

 

Including all its contents.

 

The Dropbox keeps on syncing but never does. The root folder is added but there is nothing inside (while there is a lot inside on the remote folder).

 

The command line `dropbox filestatus` incorrectly shows the folder "as up to date", regardless that its content it's empty (and it should not).

Hey @tryit, thanks for reaching out!

Can you try reinstalling the Dropbox application on your computer (without uninstalling it), to see if that helps?

Let me know how it goes!
