Playing Music from Local Dropbox

New member | Level 2

To avoid duplicating my 300G of music on C drive I decided to move my music to the Dropbox folder. I am a DJ. When I played the music from the Dropbox folder in C: drive over the PA system it suffered occasional glitches. Could this be due to playing from local dropbox? I have checked soundcard driver etc and can't find a fault

Re: Playing Music from Local Dropbox

Hey there @JohnTango
As a first step, could you please try quitting the desktop app by using the following steps:
  • Click the Dropbox icon in your system tray (Windows) or menu bar (Mac/Linux)
  • Select your profile picture or initials to the right of the search bar.
  • Click "Quit Dropbox".
If the issue persists when Dropbox is completely closed, this suggests that the cause is related to something outside of the Dropbox application, in which case, you may want to check other applications or components of your Operating System that could be causing this.
Let me know what you find!
