Syncyng Stuck - Selective Sync Conflict

New member | Level 2

Hello !

I'm having some problems with Dropbox in the past 2 weeks.

Started one day, after turning on the PC, Dropbox started having "Selective Sync Conflict" on some folders (two folders in two locations). Deleting the folder wasn't enought.

So i uninstalled Dropbox, removed the folders from web and local, the reinstalled.

Now he's stuck at indexing files.

Already did the uninstall - install procedure. Even cleared some folders in web and local, but nothing changed.

Any help would be apreciated.


Obs: No synlinks, anti-virus or shared folders.
