What folders are causing .tmp.drivedownload (Selective Sync Conflict 1)

What folders are causing .tmp.drivedownload (Selective Sync Conflict 1)

Helpful | Level 5

After syncing dropbox with a tablet that had nto been used for some time new empty folders are being created several times every day

named 

.tmp.drivedownload (Selective Sync Conflict)

.tmp.drivedownload (Selective Sync Conflict 1) etc

 

The help pages tell me nothing about how to identify which files / folders are causing the issue or on which device.

 

I have deleted the recently used folders on all devices and installed new folders which seem to sync to alll of my 4 devices.

 

How can I identify the cause of these Conflicts.

 

Thanks ColinK

Hi @ColinK2, thanks for posting on the Community!

It would be those specific folders that are causing these issues.

If you connected an old device, then this can occur sometimes. Try checking the events page on the site to see which device added the folder on your account.

Keep me updated with any progress!
