Rapid 'syncing' to 'connecting' to 'up to date' multiple times per second

New member | Level 2

Dropbox is constantly flashing between "connecting", "syncing", and "up to date" about 3 times per second. It has been doing this all day today on both my laptop and work computer.

 

Nothing is being synced - the recent files shows only the things I would expect.

 

I'm currently using 39.3.47 on Windows 7 Pro x64 with SP1.

Hello, @Robert E.21 (and @alaimos@johneemaco)...

 

I'm not experiencing any problems using their desktop client so it's not happening to everyone (v38.4.27 on 2 - Win7 64bit computers).

 

I recommend that you try the newest stable build (offline installer) vs any beta versions that are available (eg: v39.3.47).  After installing it, please restart your computer.  Be certain that you use the same Dropbox login credentials when you sign-in to the Desktop Client.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  To prevent from receiving early releases of the beta versions of the Desktop Client... login to your Dropbox General page, scroll downward to the "Early Release" section and make sure that it's OFF (view screenshot below).
