[Tip] simple dropbox sync related bug and solution

[Tip] simple dropbox sync related bug and solution

Explorer | Level 3
This article is not a question but an answer.
 
I find a simple dropbox bug and share it.
After unix soft linking (ln -s ~ / a / a.txt ~ / b / b.txt) and changing the directory name of a, dropbox is trying to sync indefinitely (in my case for at least 3 weeks)

 

After a few minutes of work, I removed the soft link file and fixed sync problem.

I'm not sure if this is a bug that can be reproduced, but if syncing persists, you might want to check it out.
