I recently upgraded from Personal Dropbox to Business Dropbox which created a Team Folder. I have several large folders (30 + GB) which I thought I had moved from my Personal Dropbox to the Team Folder in order to share with an employee. In reality, I had copied the folder instead of moving so that there was actually two sets of folders: one in my personal dropbox and one in my Team Folder.
Unfortuntately, for the last week, I did not realize this, and some documents have been getting saved in the Team Folder and some documents or files have been getting modified in my Personal Folder.
It would take a very long time to manually go through each each folder (one of which has 205 subfolders), and syncronizing them. I know there's not a magic Dropbox Solution to fix it.
Does anyone have any suggestions though such as third party applications? It would take hours and hours and hours for me to do it manually.
I recently upgraded from Personal Dropbox to Business Dropbox which created a Team Folder. I accidentally created to seperate versions of a large folder (36 GB, 205 subfolders, and subfolders inside the subfolders) a week ago, and I just now realized it.
Employee has been saving files and updating the version in the Team Folder. I've been updating and saving the version in my Personal Folder. So there are two versions in two locations each of which have different content. 99.9 % of the content is identical, it's the .1 % that is different than I need to sycronize.
Is there a way to do it other than manually going through every single subfolder and file? Third party app? Other solutions? I'm sure this happens with some frequency...
