Hi Jane, Thanks for helping me out so fast! Yes I added the Dropbox folders on my Mac first that my boss shared with me so they were already in my Finder menu. Then I added Dropbox to my topbar and synced with online. So maybe I did it the wrong way around? It uploads the files from my Macbook to online with exactly the same name and extension. But those files are already in the online team Dropbox. So somehow it thinks the files on my Mac are new ones. Think that is the best way I can explain and it feels there should be a simple solution for it that I probably just did wrong haha I just can't figure out how or what.

Hi Dropbox helpers, It is almost weekend but I still need some help with this syncing duplicating problem on my Mac. I already read through all the open topics and checked Apple doubles etc but I think it has more to do with a simple wrong button or preference that I clicked... So I just started working at a new company and my boss added me to the team Dropbox with all the invoices. I added Dropbox to my Macbook and I left the preferences to sync online only. I didn't click the selective sync. So I have 4 folders that are on my Mac with a dozen subfolders and thousands of files. Dropbox started syncing and instead of recognizing the folders, making duplicates of all the files from the Mac to the online Dropbox... So I obviously pauzed the sync and deleted the duplicates. How do I sync the already existing folders with my Macbook without Dropbox creating a duplicate for everything that is on my computer? Thanks for helping a gal out!
