I have tried rebooting, reinstalling, updating to latest, fix hard links, fix permissions.
I have completely removed dropbox and deleted the folder, reinstalled fresh and let dropbox recreate the directories i set in selective sync and still will not sync files.
syncing 5105 files
uploading 1 file
Hi there @Pyracket, I hope you're well today!
I noticed that the version of the app you're using is a beta build, which is shown with xx.3.xxx. The stable builds are numbered with xx.4.xxx.
I'd suggest downgrading from the beta version of the app to see if that does the trick and helps the sync to progress.
Let me know how it goes!
I'm having exactly the same problems after a Windows 10 update, with exactly the same DB build. After hours with my IT folks over a coupe days, and trying all the published 'fixes' for not syncing, and a lot more efforts after that, the final conclusion was that the latest Windows 10 update broke Dropbox and I will need to wait for the fix to come from Dropbox. Our institution (a university) has been flooded with identical tech support calls over the past few days; all issues occured after the Windows 10 update was pushed.
According to IT folks, this is now something Dropbox is aware of, but I'd love to see some public confirmation of this by them, and an estimate of when the fix is coming out. If this is true, I know this isn't a problem caused by Dropbox, but it sounds like it is one that will need to be fixed by them.
I need to access my files on all my devices and to access folders that are shared by many collaborators. Right now I can't do either one!
Thanks for your updates here!
Now that you've changed back to the stable build @Pyracket, could you try just once more the steps to fix hardlinks/permissions to see if that helps?
Also, can you check in your desktop app preferences if the bandwidth is limited at all?
Syncing issues could occur for a number of reasons @bs37, it could be that you're having a different issue. Could you share your ticket number (eg. #1234567) with me here so that I can check on this from my side?
Keep me posted!
I have tried reseting hardlinks and permissions, uninstalled and reinstall previous versions and the latest stable, bandwidth is not limited as i have had to resort to other syncing options and files sync fine with no issues, it will sync with the online only option but when you select a file it will not download it and sticks at syncing/downloading that file, i have tested on 24kb files a 2Mb file and a 1gb file one at a time and they all saying downloading but never finish.
I'd recommend checking out these possibilities to rule them out. Do any other desktop devices on your network have this issue, or just this machine?
