Dropbox not updating files mac

dropbox not updating files mac-32

I erased my data in 1Password for i OS on i Phone and setup sync again. However, I've noticed that the sync with Dropbox the i Phone will frequently hang.

But the syncing on the i Phone (haven't tested it on my i Pad or Windows box yet) is a concern. I'm having problems with Dropbox, as it is constantly syncing data and eating up my CPU. I guess there must be a metadata file that I should delete, but I'm not sure where to look.Mac OS X 10.7.3 -- Dropbox 1.2.52 I had a similar problem a long time ago.I'm running Yosemite (and have been for a while) and suddenly new Dropbox files are not showing in Finder.They are syncing properly, and I can see this in the Dropbox recently updated menu in the top bar, and also on Terminal if I .I am a huge fan of Dropbox, but every once in a while the Dropbox application on my Windows-based PC and Mac gets caught in an endless sync loop in which no files are actually being downloaded or uploaded, but the application is running like crazy to catch up.

This happened most recently when a video being shared between myself and several coworkers needed to be re-rendered and replaced.

Because a file with the same basic name and properties already existed, Dropbox wasn’t able to create the new file on our end.

This isn’t always a problem, but it can be if the sun and moon are aligned in a certain way.

This works, however the same problem returns once my mac is restarted.

When I add or change an item, the dropbox icon shows no activity, but the sync preference pane indicates a sync is occurring (ie "Last synced: 1 min ago"). I've rebooted, and so far, it is still syncing, so that's a much better situation.

Either way, you can solve these issues almost every time by clearing Dropbox’s hidden cache folder.
