I have a little red exclamation mark by my Dropbox icon. When I open it up, I have a message that Dropbox couldn't upload a file: Windows 10 Pro.dbx-external-drive. This file is in my Dropbox root directory and my Dropbox files are all on my 😧 drive. And this file is 0 bytes in size. Looks like the file name format meets the requirements. Any ideas? Can the file be deleted?

Thank you for your reply. It is a zero bytes long file that appeared on my Windows 10 PC. I could have accidentally enabled a cloud drive but I sure didn’t mean to. Where would I look to see if I did? Seems like everyone has a cloud drive! Is there a Dropbox cloud drive?
Deleting the file got rid of the error and that’s good enough for me. Just had hoped someone would have known why the file all of a sudden appeared. Thanks.
