"File does not exist" When it does, actually.

"File does not exist" When it does, actually.

New member | Level 2

I am using Dropbox on Fedora 32, with dolphin file manager.

 

I cannot open files in a particular folder, everytime I try to open it, it says "file does not exist". They do exist when accessing Dropbox on the Web. Also, all files in subfolders and other folders are accessible normally. Next I deleted the folder and reuploaded it, still same issue. I also tried renaming. What can I do?

Hi @Asketzus,

I'm trying to follow your explanation. but I'm missing something. Can you clarify?

How exactly you "try to open it"? Is it there or not, according to your Dolphin view in the particular folder?

How exactly you "reuploaded it"? Did you move/copy the folder into Dropbox folder and let it upload into  the cloud or upload it using web interface?

:thinking face:

 

PS: What's the sync status actually? Something very important! Is it "Up to date"? What is the state of the particular file, also? If you haven't yet, set Dolphin work with Dropbox. :winking face:
