Well, I have nearly 300,000 files in my Dropbox folder, so it isn't practical to look at each file to see if there is a green check, a blue circle, or a red X. But, I CAN tell you that there are quite a number of files that don't have ANY visual indicator (no green check, blue circle, or red X). I have noticed over the years I've been using DB that both on Macs and PCs, the visual indicator is inconsistent. It is usually there, but not always.

Hi! I recently had to "refresh" my desktop, which uninstalled all of my apps. After I reinstalled Dropbox desktop (Windows 10) the computer acts funny.
I can see Dropbox in my systems tray showing a constant syncing of 11K+ files. When I right click to open the systems tray, the window opens up....all white...not responding. After about 3-4 minutes, the unresponsive window closes. Opening Dropbox causes my computer to act funny---I can't even reliably open task manager to kill apps.
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
