On both my iPad and my iPhone, when I mark a folder from Dropbox or any other cloud service as a “Favorite”, it shows up in my favorite list in the Files app, but if I switch apps or close the files app, when I reopen it, the folder disappears from the favorites list.
Could you please clarify if you're referring to starring files by any chance? Are you seeing any errors before or after they disappear? A screenshot (excluding personal info) of the behavior you're experiencing would also be very helpful so as to have a better understanding of your concern.
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for getting back to me on this, @FrankieT.
The first thought that comes to mind is that if you're trying to sync Favorites from the iOS mobile app to the Files app, then this isn't currently an option.
However, if this isn't exactly what you've been doing, then we can go to email so as to have a more in-depth look into this. In this case, I can contact you directly to your Forum profile.
Let me know how you'd like to go about this!
if if you try to follow what Frankie is telling, you should be able to understand the issue. It’s not syncing favorites, it happens on same device.
1. From iOS Files app, long tap on Dropbox folder and select Favorite. It should appear uneed Favorites on side pane.
2. Now force close Files app and restart Files app, the folder under Favorites is now gone.
This doesn’t happen if I favorite folder on Google Drive or iCloud. Only happen to Dropbox folder.
Please try not just to response, but spend time to understand the issue.
I actually have a screen recording from my phone which shows the exact problem. But to re-clarify. When I find a folder that I would like to put into the favorites list, I mark it as a favorite and it appears in the list. If i get out of the files app and go anywhere else, when I get back in, it is no longer shown in the favorites list.
