If computer B hasn't been switched on in a while, and is running an older version of the Dropbox desktop application, then it could overwrite the version of the file back to the old one.
Another possibility is that an app or service is using that old version of the file constantly (like a configuration file for instance). Therefore, the file is considered locked, and might update the site with the old version.
Do either of these situations apply in your scenario? If not, could you let me know more about the type of file that isn't syncing?
The computers are each used every few days. One is mostly for local travel to meetings while the other is in the home office.
Examples of file types: Excel spreadsheets, pdfs that get edited.
Another scenario: A file is created on Computer A and moved to a Dropbox folder on Computer A so that it is uploaded to Dropbox. Computer B should then have that file in the same folder, right? And if a Dropbox file was removed from Computer A, then it should be removed from Computer B, right?
I may be misunderstanding the definition of syncing.
