One of my folder is empty on my local Dropbox, vs. complete and up to date on Dropbox website 

It says Dropbox is up to date on my local computer 

What can I do ?

Hello there @Chloe0410, thanks for joining the Community!

Could it be that the files in the folder contain incompatible characters in their names? 

Otherwise, can you check if the folder is selectively un-synced through the app's preferences?

Let me know what you find, Chloe!
