considering the path you entered is correct, it should show. try running chflags nohidden ~/Dropbox/test.txt and see if it unhides it for you if its not showing the file, my guess is that the path you entered is incorrect. go to Dropbox folder and do pwd and see the path and use it

First, copy everything from the local Dropbox folder on the renamed hard drive to a folder that is not being monitored by Dropbox. Once you've got them someplace safe, re-link Dropbox to the new file location and let it download new copies of everything.

The files synced will be monitored using automatic directory monitoring in windows where the file modification or removal will be updated to dropbox instance where it will sync the status to the server.

"Files on my dropbox account that correspond to the content of my external hard drive?" Exactly. If you have a sync setup between the DropBox servers and an external drive, and you pull the external drive, it may think the files have been purposefully removed, and will sync as such -- deleting the copies from the Dropbox servers.

Did you use symlinks in Windows to map the Dropbox folder to your OS X drive? I believe the HFS+ driver for Windows (you maybe use Paragon) treats these HFS+ file attributes as regular files and makes the Windows client sync them to web.

I had a red cross icon next to a pdf someone else sent me. I saw it for about three days. What I did was copy the pdf in the Desktop, changing its name. In the pdf information, just in case, reduced my privileges to "read only". Then logged off from Dropbox in my three macs, and logged in to Dropbox via the internet. Then permanently deleted the reluctant ...

To the cloud I upload only data that was encrypted before leaving my computer. That is the only way to ensure the cloud provider or anyone else can access it. You may use the same approach for your personal data, while leaving your public data unencrypted. Sample code cd Private/privat/ tar -cvf privat.tar privat/ gpg --symmetric -o privat.tar.gpg ...

It seems a litte farfetched. I would do as follows: Create an extra account, a proxy account, so to speak. This way you have two accounts, A (yours) and B (lab user). In account A, create a folder and share it with B. Then, log in to account B on the machines you would have otherwise configured for "selective sync". This way, if anyone tries to access the ...

The way I used to be able to do so: install dropbox in one OS. Set the default dropbox directory. After that, Dropbox starts syncing files. Then, shut down this OS and boot into the other. Empty the dropbox directory. Then Install dropbox and again, set the default dropbox directory. Dropbox starts syncing again. After that, both OS's have the same dropbox ...

You can use Bvkup2. The beta is free. You can set up a scheduled job to continuously copy a changed file from one location to another location (your Dropbox?).

You can use Dropboxifier. It allows for symbolic links via a GUI. Remember that symbolic links are followed once. If you make changes, you'll have to exit out of Dropbox and start again if you want the symbolic link to be followed again.

Use PowerPoint Online. It does not provide real-time updates, but it should allow for better collaboration than DropBox which is just trying to sync changed files. The other option is to use Google Slides.

If you are using Windows, you might want to checkout Microsoft SyncToy. I believe you can set a scheduled task for SyncToy to sync your files automatically on a given time. I personally use GoodSync, the software is more robust but that's not a free solution.

The question is not necessary for newer versions of Okular. From FAQs section of the Okular website Why the newly added annotations are not in my PDF document? How can I annotate a document and send it to a friend/colleague/etc? They explain that in newer versions of Okular, annotations can be saved directly into the PDF so not in separate metadata ...

From Dropbox website: "Right now, Dropbox will only sync the files in your Dropbox folder." https://www.dropbox.com/help/12 However, there are some ways to achieve it. I would suggest, apart from moving the folder into your Dropbox folder and setting up a shortcut (Windows), alias (Mac OS X), or link (Linux) to access it from its former location (the ...

I also had the same problem. I could solve it by following steps. Suppose I want to re-add "Camera Uploads" folder. Go to dropbox folder. Delete "Camera Uploads" folder.

It's called a conflicted copy. There should be two copies which can be manually merged. If two people change the same file at the same time, Dropbox won't try to merge the changes. Instead, it will save the original file as well as a second version which has the same name but is appended with "conflicted copy," the name of the person or computer ...
