Hey, @bbailey1586, welcome to our community. 

Can you tell me more about what’s happened? 

- How did you add this file to your Dropbox account? 

- Are you using our desktop or mobile app? 

- Was this show already in your Dropbox, and you opened it for editing it from there? 

Let me know, and we’ll go from there!

Sanchez.  It is my understanding that Dropbox is supposed to back up my entire system (files). When I checked for a Powerpoint show that I created it is not there.

I don't use the mobile App.

It appears that it never was uploaded?

Hi @bbailey1586, the Dropbox desktop application will only sync files located in the Dropbox folder, and not your entire machine.

If you enabled computer backup, then some other system folders (like Desktop, Documents and Downloads) would be moved into the Dropbox folder to sync.

Was this PowerPoint file saved in the Dropbox folder? Did you upload it manually to the site directly? Any other info or screenshots would be helpful!
