3 users are working on Dropbox in the group "Company XY" with "Folder new" (formerly it was called "Folder old"). User A has renamed all subfolders. Now users A and B have all folders duplicated - in the old and in the new naming. (We get the problem solved).
User C (iOS) now received the notification ""Folder old" is unlocked for you". However, this folder has actually been named "Folder new" for several months and he already had access to it.
User C no longer has access to the current folder structure of "Folder new" via the desktop app. His system synchronizes over several days. However, "Folder new" is available to him when he accesses it online. He has already logged out of Dropbox several times. What can we do?
Thanks a lot for your help!
Is the folder a Team one, or a shared one?
Also, any screenshots are more than welcome, so we can have a full visual of this.
Keep me posted.
thank you very much for your feedback ! (:
User C downloaded the desktop app brand new, so it is up to date. The syncing status says that everything has been synced.
User C was first in the group. Users A and B joined later. (By the way, user B, our back-up system, has the same logins as user A, it's just another computer. So user B is negligible).
I'm attaching two screenshots of our folder structure here. The views should actually be visible to both except for one folder. 01_VP, for example, was previously called VP and was created by user A. 02_Fotopool is a new folder. This is the only one that remains the same for both.
thank you very much for your reply (:
After I removed user C from folder "01_VP" and then added him again, he received a message that he was invited by me to folder "VP" (old naming).
We assume that the folder structure of "01_VP" and "VP" is identical, and only the renaming of the folder is not recognized by the system?
Or maybe user C has to be completely removed from our group and added again?
We are very confused because we have stored important documents for joint collaboration in the folder.
Thanks for your help!
that was a good hint, but unfortunately has also brought nothing.
We have now decided that user C works with the login data of user A for the moment, or can there be complications if we eventually work with it at the same time?
This sounds rather strange @howtodragon
