Not allowed to use Dropbox Sync

Level 5

I am forced to sync my drop box through GoodSync due to cyber security rules at my work place (anattended syncs).  Good sync is attended because I make it run.

The problem that I have is that when use Goodsync the modified date and time are all the same. The "modified time" is the same as the sync time.  I just tried Goodsync  with google drive and it gets the sync date and time correct. Any thoughts? This is a show stoper for me. I can't afford to have my files all have the same midified date and time.

Hey @jaresingsince you mention that syncing takes place with a third party app, I’d kindly recommend contacting them as they may have more info on the matter. 

In any case, if you have any other questions in the future, please don’t hesitate to get back to us. Thanks! slightly smiling face

Its answers like this that are going to make me take my money elsewhere. I mean goodness, thanks for the help!. Everytime I post an unsolvable problem you guys agressively tell me to solve the problem some how else. I really don't want to go to google drive or one drive, but that is where I am being pushed.

The problem is that you're asking Dropbox for support with a product that they didn't creaate, have no knowledge of and have no control over. Dropbox provides API access to third parties so they can create applications that work with Dropbox. They can't themselves support those third-party products. Only the people that create them know how they work. Only the people that create them have access to the code for troubleshooting. Dropbox will support the API, but they cannot, nor do they have the ability to, support a third-party application.

There's nothing that Dropbox can do or change that will resolve the modify date issue that you're having. You have to talk to the people who created the application that you're using to sync.

Ok, then how about making dropbox keep my "date modified" on the files I pull over. Why do the files that  I pull over all have their date modified as today!  Talk about disaster. Try searching on Date modified and dropbox and read the horror stories.
