Applying selective sync settings taking ages how to fix?

Applying selective sync settings taking ages how to fix?

Hi everyone,

I have recently unlinked my professional dropbox and have relinked. I have loads of files so I am only adding a certain amount to my iMac. However 'selective sync' just spins and is taking ages. Is there a way to speed this up?

I am literally syncing about two folders at a time and it's taken nearly half a day for dropbox to sync them.

Please help!

You didnt try and use a previous Dropbox install did you?

I'm wondering if the database is corrupt. However, selective sync does (and always has I'm afraid) taken a long time to apply.
