Syncing forever

Syncing forever

My Dropbox seems to be syncing 116.710 files right now. I’m not even sure what it is doing actually. It seems to be uploading my files and the file number gets bigger and bigger. When I sellect folders not to see on my computer or try to make them online only it takes no action. I don’t even see the check signs or any finder extention of dropbox. It just syncs forever and doesn’t even show a navigation to make me understand what it is doing. No time information or anyhing. My mac is useless when dropbox syncs because it slows it down and doesn’t help me remove unwanted files on my mac. I’m very frustrated. Thanks.

Hi @Slmkmn, I'd be happy to help look into this with you!

If you're seeing that your computer is experiencing an overall slow-down, have a look at this article.

You can also give these steps (for Mac) a try in case they do the trick for you. 

Give them a shot and let me know of any updates, cheers!
