I recently got a new Dell laptop and installed the Dropbox app on it.
I completed the sign in and all appeared to go well.
I opened the dropbox folder in Windows Explorer and it appeared to be ok.
However, opening the folders I have discovered that only approximately 60% of my folders have actually synced over.
The sync states that it is complete and that there were no sync issues.
I can logon to the online version and they are all there.
I can access them on my phone and through my Mac also that displays all folders and files.
I have tried creating files from the laptop and that live syncs back online immediately, and vica versa.
Any ideas why these folders are not syncing over?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have the Dropbox app instaled and running in Windows.
And successfully using it shared (both ways) with a few of my clients.
When I was recently sent another sharing invitation from a new client, I can see it in the online Dropbox, but would not appear/synch in my Windows File Explorer.
I already checked the folder naming convention and all seems OK...
Thank you, Lori, all resolved by now. Was it a reboot that my system needed, or was it a background intervention of the DB Help Team (yes, I contacted also the email help-line)... Or just a bit more time and patience... I don't know, but can now properly see all shared and shared with me folders.
There is no problem with the content on the dropbox.
I can get this online, on my phone and it sync to my MacBook.
There are entire folders that have not synced over on my new laptop which is quite frustrating.
