The content of my dropbox folder is not showing all the files in the folder within finder. If a do a search within finder, the files are there. If I just navigate to the folder, the files are not there. This is really strange behaviour and has me very concerned since I've moved some vital files over to dropbox as a way to have automatic backup and access to the files on multiple computers. What is also odd is that the files are not showing online in dropbox now either. I have smart synch activated but is not turned on for this folder.
Solved! Go to solution.
When I command + double click the file in the finder it just opens (it's a pdf in Acrobat). I can paste the link into safari and the file opens in dropbox.
My current sync status is up to date.
It's so strange. Right now I have two finder windows open with the same folder and they are showing different files. One listing is missing some files (shows a total of 26 files) and the other listing is missing other files (shows a total of 15 files) though I think all of them are physically there.
I just opened the same folder from my ipad and it's not showing all the files either. Just wanted to verify that it wasn't only my laptop having display issues.
This same behaviour is happening in the dropbox web broswer.
AHA... you're a genious! There is a slight name difference in one of the subfolders. One has a '++' and the other doesn't. I think I may have inadvertently renamed the folder and that's how everything got jumbled.
