New Dropbox user struggling using dropbox with access database files.

Explorer | Level 3

New User struggling using dropbox with access database files. Trouble opening files from dropbox not allowed can only download very messy. How do I get them back into dropbox and delete multiple versions of same file?


Any easy solution would be welcome don't do complicated! Is dropbox a Microsoft product if so why does it not support all Office 365 file types easily. This is not good Microsoft!

Re: Using Dropbox new user


Welcome to Dropbox and the Community @CharlieElston

Dropbox is not a Microsoft product but it is integrated with Office Online for you to edit your files easily.  I understand that you are getting conflicted copies when editing database files that you have syncing in your Dropbox local folder. 

Database files are not suggested to be synced with Dropbox.. We have several topics on this matter where there is a suggested workaround for this file type. I have attached some below, I believe they include all the information you need: 

I know it is not very good news but I hope to have helped offering information. 

Please get back to me for anything else you might need. 

Have a nice day!
