I moved my dropbox folder to a different location, following the instructions provided by dropbox. (I use the desktop client.
OS X 10.11.5)
Specifically, I clicked on the Dropbox icon, went to Preferences -> Account, and changed Dropbox location. It took a while to copy the files. Now, for some weird reason, most of my files are stuck in 'syncing'. I don't understand why it has to sync anything at all, since the files were copied within the hard drive, and no file was modified in the cloud.
It's been stuck at
6,990 files remaining for the last two hours. When I move the mouse over the dropbox logo, it says
Indexing 6,990 files and
Can't sync "x (Access Denied). What does this even mean? There are shared folders in my dropbox that I need to use right now. What do I do?
