Syncing/uploading a large number of files seems impossible

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi there, I have a problem with uploading a large number of files, small and big, to dropbox. I want to use this for backing up my Mac and store files that I do not use in the near future. 

I use the dropbox program om my Macbook. It starts calculating the amount of files and uploading time, after 2 days of noise from my Macbook it still calculates and does not upload anything. 

Someone here is able to help me with this problem?

Thanks for joining our Community to get help with this @Rinse 

I understand you are not syncing at the time. Kindly check the following for me: 

  1. What version of the app do you have installed there? 
  2. What is the exact Dropbox syncing status you are getting? Can I get a screenshot of it please? 
  3. How is your Internet speed? Speed test

Looking forward to all the details. Thanks!
