problems syncing between tablet and desktop

Level 2

Can anyone help .

My tablet has photos on dropbox which do not apear on my computer dropbox .

When I try to combine - I keep getting dropbox full messages.

I would like to be able to save my (tablet) dropbox photos to desktop but. . . it seems excessively complicated.

Ultimately I would then like to save my images on my desktop photos.

Help anyone 

Thanks

Richard

If you are getting a message saying 'Dropbox full' then thats why the images from your tablet are not syncing..... your Dropbox is full. You have no quota left. 

You need to delete files in Dropbox to make more space, or, get more space.

Hi Mark thanks for reply.

Trouble is - the photos on my Tablet ARE on dropbox !?

Its currently telling me I have an improbable 337.7% of 6.8 GB

Eh ?

Did I accept dropbox ( Circa 2005/6 ?) - then they changed the rules ?

Trying to delete extra or poor photos - but many are ireplaceable 

I managed to get from around 395% to 339% -

Cheers

Richard

If they are on the tablet that does not automatically mean they are on Dropbox. Dropbox has stopped syncing as you are over quota. It wont have uploaded everything from the tablet as you have no quota. 

As you are so far over my guess is either some shared folders have ate it all up, or, you had time limited promo space which has now expired.

Thanks again ,

The promo expiry feels right.

Talk about moving goalposts !

Thoroughly dissillusioned with the whole dropbox saga.

I wonder if its worth trying the freebie upgrade for a month ( or whatever the latest gimmick is) Getting the photos on the desktop - moving them to the harddrive on the desktop - then leaving permanently ???

Thanks again for your help

Richard
