I have uploaded 11,000+ files to Dropbox, but I only see 8000+ of them. I realized it was because Dropbox automatically replaces the files (with older timestamp) with the new files that are with the same name. Since Dropbox CS is not very helpful, I just want to locate all the 2000+ files with duplicate names on my macbook, and upload them again. Has anyone here experienced the same thing, and share some advice?

  • I'm confused, are these files in different folders? Does dropbox just get rid of the folders then? Anyway, use something like fdupes. – djsmiley2k Mar 16 '18 at 19:18
  • what about the remaining 1000+ files? – jsotola Mar 17 '18 at 4:00
