I’m getting this warning from dropbox on my desktop computer: “Smart Sync is experiencing an issue. To open online-only files and folders, right-click and choose Smart Sync and then Local.”
I can’t change any ’local’ files to ‘online-only’ using Smart Sync but changing ‘online-only’ files to ‘local’ still works. There were also files inside dropbox which didn’t save properly causing me to lose a lot of the work.
I think I started experiencing these issues right after a failed attempt to make a bootable clone of my OS drive (where the dropbox folder is located). During the cloning backup my computer just turned off on its own. After more failed attempts, I noticed the issue with dropbox and ran disk utilities’ first aid with my drive. It said some files were corrupted, which I seemed to have fixed by using first aid in recovery mode. However dropbox is still not working properly. I also tried deleting dropbox then reinstalling to the newest version with no luck
I tried deleting my Dropbox app and offline installing using the link you provided but the problem still persists.
When i right-click a 'loca'l file, I don't see a smart sync option at all. When I right-click a 'online-only' file, I see the smart sync option, but only with a 'local' option to select. I've attached screenshots showing this issue and Dropbox's warning,
