I have broken Dropbox on my laptop and now it is stuck indexing. Is it possible to delete my local copy of Dropbox completely and force the Dropbox on my laptop to just reset itself with the server?
Previously I put a large number of files into my local Dropbox folder (~1.5 million). Even though they were each very small the upload was taking a long time (it took about 3 - 4 days to upload the first 1 million) so I decided to remove them from my Dropbox and upload zipped copies of the folders instead. When I did this though my Dropbox froze up and started indexing the files I had removed (the ~1.5 million). The index is running very, very slowly (~10^4 files per day during normal use of my laptop) and while it's indexing it does not sync any changes.
At this rate it will take weeks to finish. I have contacted Dropbox support and they said I would just have to wait for it. But can anyone suggest any alternative? I'm willing to consider more drastic options and I don't mind losing recent local change to my files.
