Problem with dropbox: is there a limit in number of files ?

Post by oli »

I've used the cloud-based dropbox synchronisation for a while (with ext://DropBoxV2/ ) happily, but since a few months, the process doesn't work as it propose to delete all (or almost all) untouched files although they are still in the source. (it takes also more than 10 minutes to check name changes even when there is almost no modification in the full tree structure). It happens that I have also more files on my dropbox, more than the 300'000 they advise (but I cannot tell if the problem with syncovery started exactly at the time I exceed this limit).

Is it due to the 300'000 limit and if so, is there a way to make syncovery still work, even if it is slow ?

Is it something else ?

Usiny sycovery 9.08b build73, on windows 10
exact mirror, left to right (with versionning) from dropbox to an external disk

Please try deleting the cloud cache database. The path and filename is mentioned in the log files.
