Hi, thanks for responding. I received the original pdfs from the accountant, and after downloading them I put them into a Dropbox folder on my pc (which syncs all the time online). I opened each pdf on Adobe Reader to check each one was correct. I asked for two to be replaced, as the information needed updating. These file names began with J in a list of 35 or so pdfs. Once I had the full list in alphabetical order, I began dragging them one by one to email out to staff, as they were pay slips. At some point the little green marks started moving on the pdfs in the folder, but I didn't think anything of it. Then I realised that a couple of members of staff had received the wrong pdf - the pdfs had their names on, but the contents were now for another member of staff. Everything was correct up to J, then wrong below that. pdf K had content for staff member M, pdf L had content for staff member N, and so on. The files had changed or adopted the wrong names somehow. I re-downloaded the original files from the accountant, and as before, they were correct, but the very same files downloaded first time had changed on my computer in Dropbox. I've been online and can't see any different file versions. Completely weird.

Dropbox mixed up pdf file names in a long list of pdfs, and I ended up sending stuff to the wrong people, even though the file names were correct and I'd already checked the contents with Adobe Reader. Names switched to different files. Is this a known problem?
