Sync Issue error message

Sync Issue error message

I have uploaded successfully several identical folders of DVD files - each folder a back of a DVD with the same content. 

 

Here is a screenshot of the situation: 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/9vx46vi6xcbd658/DVD%20sync%20issue.jpg?dl=0

 

As you can see from the screen shot - one of the folders keeps coming up with the same error message that there is a wrong character in the file or folder title. I have withdrawn the file from Dropbox, renamed it and put it back in Dropbox but the same error message keeps coming up. 

 

By the way - is it possible to upload screenshots directly to this email - the only way I have found to do it is put it in Dropbox and include the link above

My guess is that the folder directory is too long for Windows (usually around 250 characters starting at C:\ being 3 etc.)

Try renaming the folder to something smaller and see if that helps.

Thanks Mark! .. I think this is the answer - I shortened the name ( even though i am on a Mac not Windows) and it has started synching
