If 1Password won’t sync with Dropbox on some or all of your devices, try each troubleshooting step in order.
After each step, check if 1Password is now syncing with Dropbox (create an item in 1Password and see if it syncs to all your devices).
We're in the early days of the cloud, but it's easier than you might think to put all your important files onto Dropbox.
There are plenty of reasons to put things into the cloud, be it as a backup or to access them remotely from other devices.
In addition to interfering with updating Selective Sync preferences, reference files can cause high CPU usage, poor syncing performance, permissions issues, and space usage discrepancies.
sudo chflags -R nouchg ~/Dropbox ~/.dropbox ~/.dropbox-master sudo chown "$USER" "$HOME" sudo chown -R "$USER" ~/Dropbox ~/.dropbox sudo chmod -RN ~/.dropbox ~/Dropbox chmod -R u rw ~/Dropbox ~/.dropbox We strongly recommend against methods that add referenced files (symlinks, junction points, or networked folders) to the Dropbox folder.
Dropbox is complex and depends on many factors, including your network environment and software configuration.
This article is a collection of common solutions for syncing problems.
If you hard drive is very low on disk space and you're unable to free up space using Selective Sync, you'll need to make space available outside of the Dropbox folder.
Dropbox is not able to selectively sync folders if they (or the files they contain) are being used in other applications.
At the same time, I want to be able to access my important files while I'm on the go, and I want to know that they're backed up in case catastrophe strikes. I've got a local Time Machine backup running (two, actually) and I use Backblaze for nightly backups to the cloud, and though I can use Backblaze to access files from my i Phone, it's just terribly slow. Uploads and downloads sling through the web as fast as my connection can handle.
