OK - this is great - BUT WHEN WILL ALL THESE Smart-sync files start downloading back as "LOCAL".
I made the change and don't see thousands of potiential files comming down.
Guess it makes too much for DB to have allowed each user to decide if they wanted the "feature" As you said I didn't want it either - I control it with Selective sync myself!
this change OK now after I made this change - 3 of my 4 PCs now are "Waiting to be linked to an account"
All worked fine before I made the "turn off smart sync"!!!!!!!!!
Any help out there - wish there was aphone number for us PRO members!
Hey @JB M.2,
If you haven't already, can you restart your computers to refresh the app and your File Explorer to see if that resolves the issue with the message you see there.
If not, are you able to see the option to "Sign in" when you click on the Dropbox icon in your system tray? If you still see the "Waiting to be linked to an account" message on your desktop app, can you check your Security page here and let me know if the computers are still showing as linked.
Let me know what you find - Thanks!
Thank you Yes I booted and entered my sigin & psw - now thousands of files are indexing & uploading - not sure WHY there are so many uploading - expected thousands would be downloading. Going to gice it a couple of days and then do the signin on the 3rd PC and see what happens.
Enhancement - just more work & frustration for users.
Could have been bypassed with just some communication with users asking if we wanted this option! I do a lot of work ooff-line so I need the local copies that I CONTROLLED.
TOO BAD THEY THINK THEY KNOW MORE THAN A USER,
Hey @JB M.2,
I'm glad to hear that it's sorted out for you now!
If you have any other questions about this then please feel free to drop us a message here.
Yay! Finally! Was struggling with this problem for a while!
Weirdly both Google Drive and Dropbox started to rotten - the developers make stupid choices and the formerly solid product becomes a joke. I guess the original developers from MIT are long gone and the decisions are made by sales people.
