Syncing has been stuck for me for several hours on MacOS Catalina. What can I do?

Explorer | Level 3

It says it has 4,113 files to sync, but has not changed in several hours

Hey @ChrisButler, I’m here to help on the syncing issue you’re facing! 
 
For starters, can you quickly check the tips we posted with Zdravko under this discussion, where we managed to resolve that for some of your fellow Community members by un-linking/re-linking & installing the latest Stable version?
 
If this persists, could you include a screen shot (omitting personal info) in your next message for me showing me what’s your current sync status?
 
Thanks & I look forward to hearing back from you with the results!

I have tried all those suggestions. It looks like files are syncing but the counter is not going down.

Thanks for the extra details & the screenshots @ChrisButler
 
As you mentioned that you followed the suggestions I had posted here, can you specify whether you had a chance to fix permissions as well? 
 
If so, would it be okay if we continued this discussion via ticket? If you confirm, I’ll create one on our system on your behalf. 
 
Thanks again!
