A have a folder containing several files and one sub-folder with files located on my desktop (Win10). When I move the folder to the Dropbox folder (D:\Dropbox), it syncs OK. However, I also use Boxifier and the same folder will not sync when it is added to a folder that uses a Boxifier shortcut to a network share drive folder (\\MyBookLive\public\Share Pictures\). When using Boxifier, I see the error message "Couldn't upload. Give Dropbox permission to access this file." The folder, sub-folder and all files have a red x icon overlay. This seems odd that the files would sync when placed in the Dropbox folder but will not sync when placed in a folder connected to a Boxifier link. And why would there be file permission errors in one case but not the other?
Razvan from Boxifier here. There could be multiple reasons why you get that permissions error and the actual reason can only be found by doing a deep dive into the issue. Since you mentioned this situation arises when syncing a network folder with Boxifier, I would strongly encourage you to get in touch with us in order for one of our customer support team members to take a look at it. While the team here on the Dropbox forum is great at helping users with Dropbox issues, they can only help so much when third-party applications like Boxifier are in the mix. Feel free to touch with me directly by e-mailing razvan at boxifier dot com and I will assist with this.
