Wrong Synchronisation?

New member | Level 2

Hi,

 

Im syncing my files between my Macbook and my Windows Pc and

some of the files in my Dropbox are shown on my Macbook but not at my Windows Pc.

I dont know what the problem is and how I can fix it.

Is it possible to "resync" my Windows 10 so every file is shown there with with correct date and time ?

 

Hope somebody can help me

Hi there @PUREBEATS; welcome to our Community and happy Monday!

 

If the app is showing 'up to date' on both devices, there might be some incompatible characters in some file or folder names of yours.

 

Could you take a look here and let me know if that's the case indeed?

 

Thanks!

Hi Walter!

 

Thanks for your help. I think the problem was that I was using the "" and Windows had some problems with that.

But now its all fixed. Thank you
