Hi @sadofski62, thanks for posting on the Community!

Let’s look into this matter in more detail. The .DS_Store files won’t be synced to Dropbox in general as per this article.

Regarding the permissions dialog, this could be related to accessibility functions needed to let the Dropbox desktop application work as normal. More info on this can be found here.

I hope this helps to clarify matters!

Thanks for the info, I’ve amended your post as per Community Guidelines for your own privacy.

It seems you’re also experiencing an issue with Smart Sync on this device, which could be related to the syncing behavior.

Are you able to locate the files that aren’t syncing from the Dropbox folder by following the blue syncing icons? Are they all in one folder, or in random locations throughout your account?

Could you try dragging one of those files out of your Dropbox folder, and then move it back in again to see if this helps sync it?
