Why do I get duplicates of folders with the new and old name?

New member | Level 2

Hello,

When I rename a folder on my computer, the folder gets ranamed to the new name but another folder with the old name re-appears.

I do have boxifier on my computer that uploads my files to Dropbox. But I do believe this problem is caused by Dropbox.

How can I fix this issue?

Thank you

Hey there @mhrdds
 
At first, could you please clarify for me if the folder with the old name appears and then disappears or if it stays in your Dropbox folder?
 
Could you also try disabling Boxifier and let me know the results?
 
Thanks in advance!
