Re: Cant see files in a shared folder

Cant see files in a shared folder

I have a shared folder with a client that has been active for a few months with no problems.  For a second time this week, the client uploaded files and I can't se them for over 24 hours. Status in my menu bar shows tick "Up to date"

Client has given me a screen shot showing the files on their end.  Please advise any troubleshooting.

Hi @Greg15, thanks for checking in with us - let's see what we can find. 

At first, can you or the other user see the files in question on the website? 

Also, how did they add the files to the shared folder? Was it through the website or the desktop app?

Keep me posted!

Hi Greg - would you be prepared to share what it was that your client did wrong?

It may help me because for I too have had the same issue with a client who I've been having sharing a file with for 2014 and for the third time this month she's insistent that she has uploaded a file in the normal way, and I can't see it.

Many thanks!

Hey @Debby M. - thanks for nudging us on this thread. 

I'd be happy to help in the meantime, I'll just need a bit more info on this, such as:

  • Are you or the other user able to see the files in question on the website?
  • How did they upload the files - via the website, the desktop app, or the mobile app?

Let us know what you find - thanks!

I don't know how the other user has uploaded the file - we are located about 400 miles apart and I can't see over her shoulder. Neither of us use the Dropbox UI. I believe that she uploads from her telephone as it is usually recordings for transcription.
Irrespective of that - we have been working together since 2014 without issues, and she hasn't changed her MO, and neither have I. Which leads me to suspect that something has altered at Dripbox.

Thanks for getting back to me, @Debby M.

It could be a number of factors that could result in this, and you can find some ideas listed in this article

If you're still having trouble, we'd have to continue via email to have a better look into this due to account-specific info that may be needed. 

Let me know how it goes!
