Thanks for your reply. Yes, I had tried rebootting.
I traced the blue icon as you recommended. It turns out the person who had shared a folder later moved it to an inaccessible location so my device was unable to sync. I no longer need access them, so deleted the folder & files.
Sync is working well now.
