Downloaded a PDF file from a web site to a DropBox folder on my Mac. File synched up to DropBox.com as expected.
However, the file does NOT appear in the same DB folder on my Win10 machine. According to the status in system tray, I'm 100% synched ("up to date"), yet I can see comparing the folders side by side (local and DB.com) that I am NOT 100% synched.
The file is still on the Mac - it has not been deleted.
I accepted the file name from the web site as it was - did not edit whatever the site generated. It contained a straight vertical slash "|" which until today I did not realize was a Windows issue. I was aware of regular slanted slashes among others, but not that one.
