Offline files are not available offline

New member | Level 2

I have a brand new Chromebook.  I tried using the "make available offline" option.  When I am offline, I tried to access the files.  They are not available.  I get an error message telling me that I need to connect to the Dropbox. I searched the forums and see supposed solutions, none of them help.

<p>Did you ensure your data are up to date before offline mode? Files sync don't use cellular data for sync by default! If you need, have to enable this explicitly in settings. 😉</p>
