Unable to copy files into Dropbox on my computer

Unable to copy files into Dropbox on my computer

Explorer | Level 3

I am no longer able to copy files into my dropbox on my computer. I can open a file, delete the contents, then paste new information into it. But, I cannot paste a file into it . Why is this? When I press ctrl V, nothing happens.

Are you using the desktop software which creates a Dropbox folder on your device or is it one from the App store which acts more like a mobile app?
