No date on files downloaded to new Macbook Air

No date on files downloaded to new Macbook Air

Caroline K.1
Helpful | Level 5

I'd be grateful for advice. I recently installed Dropbox on a new Macbook Air. Everything synced fine except 90% of document and other files now on this computer do not have dates on them so I cannot sort by date, which is essential.

Thanks!

Caroline

Thank you for the quick reply, Lusil.

Yes it was on List view. However, it seems to have resolved itself after shutting down and restarting. I should have tried that first before posting.! I still don't understand why it happened though, a first in many years of use.

Best wishes

Hi @Caroline K.1, I'd be more than happy to look into this with you!

Whether you're not seeing the modified dates through Finder or the Dropbox desktop app, could you please check if you've selected to preview your files as a list? 

If you still don't see them, could you send me a screenshot (without any personal info) so that I have a better visual? 

Keep me posted!
