This is really two problems. I only need a solution to the second on now, but I'll be very grateful for help with either.
There are some files that I can see on my desktop drop box, and can find and search via the finder, but I cannot see these files when I sign in to dropbox online (using the safari browser). In fact, what I see when I sign in via safari is very different from what I see in the desktop browser.
I need to share a file that I can see in my desktop app (using the finder window) with someone else, but I cannot see how to share it from the desktop. Please, does anyone know if there is a way to share from the desktop?
PS I have now learned about incompatible characters and file names... but still not sure how to fix that or share the folder I need to share
Hi and thanks for the speedy reply! I can indeed see the dropbox icon
I don't see that message if I hover the cursor over it, no.
However, if I click on it I can see a list of recent files.
I just learned that some of my files are not syncing because of invalid characters in the file name
Thank you again Elixir, and Lusil, thank you so much also for your very detailed and helpful post. That was just the information I needed.
I did succeed in sharing the folder. Now I need to tackle the unsyncable file names--which I see you gave me a link for.
It was a great and positive surprise to get the help I needed so fast!
