It’s possible that your issue is different to this matter. I imagine you’re also referring Windows 10 1803 instead of 1003?
 
Does marking the files as local help? Does it occur for all files? Can you preview them on the website with no issues? If you quit the Dropbox desktop application, after making them local, does the issue persist?
 
Keep me posted!

Windows 1003?. There is no windows 1003.

Windows 1803 means: 03 March, 18 is 2018.

Winddows 1705 means 05 May, 17 is 2017

Marking files as local is working and it does occured on all files when it is marked on online-only. 

On the website preview is working without any issues. after quitting dropbox desktop and marked them on local before closing the app, it is working 

let me know what we can do to resolve this.

If you can access the files via Dropbox website, or if you can access the files when you mark the files as LOCAL (not online only) ... then the fix is to download and install this Dropbox version:

Link -> https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Desktop-client-builds/Stable-Build-63-4-107/m-p/317555#M5151 

Install, restart and done.

I have already installed, restart and run the last builds and it didn't change anything.  

Even installed the office version didn't work either.
