Hello, I'm experiencing a very disturbing issue with my dropbox (I have a premium account). I have 2x computers at home linked to my dropbox account, fully synching all dropbox folders; here is the unexpected behavior, just tested now again with both computers up and running in LAN:
1) I have a folder (with 50k images) called "Images 2007-2014", fully synched between the 2 computers 2) On computer A, I rename the folder to "Images 2007-2015", and it gets the sync icon as it's expected, indexing the 50k files 3) On computer B, I see the old "Images 2007-2014" remaining there, and a new folder called "Images 2007-2015" appearing 3b) On the web gui, I also see this folder duplicated -one with the old name -2014, and one with the new name -2015 4) Computer A synchs the folder fine, but then realizes that the computer B and the Web still keep the old "Images 2007-2014", and then it downloads it again
Now, I just wanted to rename one folder, but now I have 2: one with the old name, one with the new one. Exact same content, but of course this is absolutely a miserable situation, as it had to re-upload again all files, which takes forever and it's definitely a non-expected scenario.
Has anyone experienced this? Do you have any idea of how to fix it?
I've removed the entire middle portion of your post. It served no purpose and couldn't be easily edited to something cleaner due to all the profanity. Please refrain from using such language here. If it continues, your posts could be deleted and/or your account suspended. Thank you.
Regarding the duplicate folder issue, your best bet will be to contact Support and have them take a look at your account.
I have a folder for Pricelists on dropbox and yesterday I renamed it adding a note on the folder, today I have two folders, one saying Pricelists and the 2nd the one I renamed.Today I have added information to the renamed and it is not showing in the old folder. I need to delete one of these, will this cause both to be deleted ? I am not sure how to solve the problem as 8 other people use these pricelists and I have to update one of these daily
