Problem with a recovered Dropbox local folder

New member | Level 2

HI,

I had my local DBX folder on an external USB drive (yes, I know that isn't a perfect solutions ...) and this drive failed. So, I recovered the wole folder, but I'm not sure if it contains all the files backed up on DBX server.

What is the procedure to be sure that the restored local folder will synced with all the files stored on DBX server (that now have the most updated situation)?

Tx

Hi @ghostmac1969 

How did you restore the folder?

If its from a backup then when you reconnect it to Dropbox it should reindex the folder (which WILL TAKE ages, and you may get lots of odd leaving and joining shared folder messages - dont panic!). Once it reindex's it should then resync changes down to the device.
