My dropbox does not synchronise automatically

My dropbox does not synchronise automatically

New member | Level 2

Dear all,

My dropbox does not synchronise automatically on my laptop when I am connected to the internet. I always have to click twice on the icon (in the desktp) to make it synchronise. How can I fix this?

Hi there @Tening; welcome to our Community!

 

Can you please let me know if you've enabled the automatic startup of our desktop app on your computer through the app's preferences?

 

Thanks!

Hi Walter, I didn't enable automatic startup of the desktop app. Now it's done.

Thanks a lot

Dear Sir,

i have a problem with synchronization. Few days ago my Dropbox wont syncronize. Red X is all the time. When i go online i can upload things, but whem i turn on my laptop my dropbox is not synchronized. When i mark the start up icon it says Can't establish stabile internet connection and it wont synchronize. I tried with hot spot from my cell phone it is the same.

Please advise what to do.

Best Regards

Goran.
