Missing synched file

New member | Level 2

Hi,

My computer, windows 8.1, just updated and on returning the dropbox desktop app looks different.  This is all I see:

Note that it is up to date.  The problem is the list of synched files are gone and now I can't select one and get a link copied to my clipboard... which is the best feature of dropbox for me!

Does anyone know how to correct this?

Hi there, it’s possible that list cleared itself when updating to the new version of the app.
 
Could you try modifying a file with a minor change (and then change it back) to see if it appears in that list for you to copy a link?
 
Thanks in advance!

Hi Jay,

No.  I've been adding files, watching it synch and then not seeing the files for selection for a while now.

Could you try an advanced reinstall of the app to see if this helps?
