Can anyone tell me what this icon is? It isn't on the list of official dropbox icons that I found on the site. Thank you.

It's on the list. It indicates a file that is marked as Online-only. The file only exists in your account online, and the file on your computer is just a placeholder and takes up no space.

Hi, I did look at that list before posting, but didn't recognize the "cloud" icon, on my computer this looks more like a little grey triangle. Maybe because it's so tiny! Thanks for clarifying.

 

Now this brings up some new questions but I will post those separately. Thank you!
