Windows explore shows directory name as invalid

Windows explore shows directory name as invalid

Hello.

I have a folder within a large shared dropbox which keeps displaying a message from exploere.exe that says the directory is invalid. Can anyone suggest why this may be the case and how to solve it?

Hey there @flyingbyfoy  - sorry to hear about this.

I'm quite positive this error is coming from Windows, but, just to be sure, could you send me a screenshot of the exact error message you get?

While we're at it, what's the status of the desktop app on your computer at the moment?

Is it 'up to date' or still syncing changes? 

Any additional information will be much appreciated!
