    Dropbox files giving warning message


    A new frustration, started recently. When I move or copy any Dropbox file, of any type, to another folder - even another Dropbox folder - I now get the daft message shown below.

    These are local files, made by me, owned by me. Only happens when the start folder is in Dropbox. I can move or copy files outside Dropbox into a Dropbox folder (or any other folder) as usual, with no silly message.

    I've also posted to the Dropbox forum but from experience I'm not optimistic.

  3. Unable to open Dropbox file sent to me

    I received a file in my yahoo.ca email box. The file shows that it is shared by Dropbox. When I click the button to open the file, my Gmail account shows up. Why does my Dropbox did not open to receive this file?

    I downloaded the file, but none of the application listed by Microsoft allows me to open the file.

    Any suggestions?

    Dropbox Sync Issue

    Hi, I had installed dropbox on my laptop and it had been syncing my folders correctly. But ever since I went home and came back, it's been not synchronizing anything that I change in the folder, and I didn't know what to do. I checked my firewall settings, disabled it, went to dropbox unlinked and relinked my laptop, reinstalled dropbox multiple times, even created a different account on my other email address but it still didn't work. It was still not syncing the folder at all. So I went to my program files folder and it's been recording this error consistently one after the other:

    Python WNDPROC handler failed
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "arch\win32\tray_icon.pyc", line 200, in on_timer
    File "arch\win32\tray_icon.pyc", line 300, in show_menu
    pywintypes.error: (0, 'SetForegroundWindow', 'No error message is available')

    So I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help me fix my dropbox. Thanks!
