I connected Dropbox & Holvi, which caused me a Permission Denied error for a .tjsys file. Why?

Level 3

Hello

Dropbox tries to download and sync system.tjsys file and says that permission is denied. I think that I have not put any system.tjsys into my Dropbox.

I yesterday loaded Holvi.com files into my Dropbox. Holvi.com made Apps folder in my Dropbox and  added folder Holvi in Apps. Now Dropbox has synced the Holvi files into my computer and tries to sync system.tjsys.

What must I do?

Re: Syncing system.tjsys

When you connect an app to your Dropbox account, such as Holvi, it creates an app folder in your Dropbox to store its data. That folder will sync to your computer just like any other file or folder in your account. The system.tjsys file is likely part of the Holvi app, so while you didn't place it in your Dropbox, the app did.

When a file is trying to sync and you receive a permission denied, it could be because that file is in use by another application. Dropbox cannot sync files that are in use. Close the application using the file and see if Dropbox will sync it. It will likely take a few minutes after closing the app for the file to be released and available to sync again.

Thank you very much. I tried to close the Holvi app, but it didn't help right away.  After a couple of days it however stopped syncing. I don't know if syncing is needed.
