I have a 2TB account. I joined yesterday and I'm on a Mac. So I placed all my work in progress in the Dropbox folder in my Finder. All works perfectly although there are a lot of folders and files. However, my colleague on another Mac remote from me, signed in as me on the same account, can see everything, and Dropbox is saying that everything has been copied. However, if he tries to open a PDF to read it says "Error can't be found". If he tries to copy a file to his finder he gets an error "-36".
So two questions:
(1) Is their a permissions thing I've not turned on even though it is the one account being used?
(2) Is there a chance I could lose all my valuable work by working inside the Dropbox folder on my Mac rather than in my normal Mac documents folder? Am I taking a big risk?
