Unwanted downloads occurs, when i move or copy the "online only files in window 8". It consume my time,data and bandwidth. Time consuming because, i have to wait for it, to download and then it moved.  This issue is not comming in window 7 .  In window 7 moving or copying the "the online only files" occurs in seconds. ( First there was an issue of smart sync in window 7 which is now solved by the solution given by dropbox )

Hi @john alam, thanks for messaging today!

 

Could you clarify if you're moving files within the Dropbox folder, between private and shared folders, or from the Dropbox folder to another location on your machine?

 

Keep me posted!
