Why can't I see the option to share my files on my desktop folder sometimes?

Level 2

This is the first time I've had any sort of syncing issues with Dropbox. I'm wondering if anyone else is having the same issues. I notice my files are there but there's no options to share any of my files. One minute it'll update and it'll have the option, the next minute it's all gone.

Re: Syncing Issues

Hey there @drfunk1986,
So from what you’re mentioning, I’m understanding that you’re referring to the desktop app Dropbox folder, correct?
When you’re not able to see the sharing options, can you let me know what the sync status of your desktop app shows at this point? Also, do you see this happen often and quickly or is it intermittent and lasts until you perform a certain action?
 Let me know - Cheers!
