Problem with screenshots autosaving into Dropbox

Problem with screenshots autosaving into Dropbox

username1232

I have Dropbox installed on both my mac laptop and Windows computer.

 

When I make a screenshot on my mac it is saved to my dropbox folder.

 

I can instantly see that screenshot in my dropbox on my Windows computer.

 

However, I can't see it on my mac.

 

It's weird because when I make the screenshot on my mac it updates the folder saying "date modified: (the time I took the screenshot)" but the file doesn't show up on my mac.

 

*FIXED*

Restarting my laptop got it to work. 

 

It's been working perfectly fine on my mac and windows for months and this problem came out of nowhere.

Have you combed through the settings? I know Windows has this setting and I imagine Mac does too.
