Dropbox not updating on computer

Dropbox, by default, syncs everything to all of your computers. If you have Dropbox installed on multiple computers, or share an account with family members, there might be folders synced to the service that you don’t want on all of your machines—especially if you’re low on hard drive space.Happily, Dropbox lets you choose which folders sync to which computers. Click the “Account” tab in this window and press the button labeled “Selective Sync”. I have a word document that I edit on either PC - to enable this I have the file stored in a Dropbox folder.If I right-click on the file and select "Browse on Dropbox website" I see that the latest file is correctly there.If I hover the mouse over the Dropbox icon I get the tooltip "All files up to date"[email protected] West is correct in the install version of Dropbox, and you may have to update the software to reduce software errors.And do you know how to fix and repair Dropbox back to work again?

As mentioned earlier, the files will remain available on the web and on any other computers you’ve set up with your Dropbox account.

Surely there must be some option to say please update this file - but can find no such thing. I should point out that my wireless internet connection is a little intermittent - could this have caused some glitch?

By the way I do not leave the old file open in word on my Windows-7 PC as I can well imagine that would cause trouble.

It’s called Selective Sync, but to find it you’ll have to dig a little bit. On Windows there’s a good chance that you’ll need to click the up arrow to the left of your system tray, in order to see the rarely-clicked icons. Whatever your operating system, you’ll see the standard Dropbox window, which includes a rolling list of recently synced files. From here, a sub-window will pop up, allowing you to uncheck specific folders or sub-folders.

Uncheck anything that you don’t want synced to the computer that you’re currently using.
