Hello Walter, Thanks for the suggestions. I am currently using smart sync now that my plan got updated and I thought it would solve it, but it seems it doesn't speed up the comparison, checking and starting processes. In fact, I feel like it even slows it down because I have now more folders than I used to (I had to use selective sync before, now I sync them online-only via smart sync). So... if I have to use selective sync even though I have smart sync, that is kind of pointless, because the whole point is to be able to see the files without having them in the machine. But ticking them out via selective sync is the same as throwing away smart sync. Of course there is the disk space benefit, but the speed aspect is harmed. It had to be as fast as if I didn't have the folders synced. A question comes to mind: About the 300k files issue, it only counts the selective-synced folders? In other words, if I have 500k files in my account and only selective-sync 50k, will my dropbox client be as fast as a dropbox account with only 50k files? But! That is not my initial question. The questions remains. Is there a plan on the roadmap to fix the file number issue or that is currently not on the to-do list?

Hey there, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I wanted to know if dropbox has any intent or plans to resolve the 300.000 files issue now that the basic plan has upgraded to 2TB. I have way over 300k files and it is now a constant to let the PC online for days to sync it all after a reboot, or to go on a jouney of counting files in folders via terminal and zipping the big ones to reduce the number of files, but this is far more advanced than (I assume) most Dropbox users would reach out to do, or further, should ever need to worry about doing. But with the 2TB plan, more files will come and many people will now be having this issue. Is there anything on the roadmap? Thanks in advance
