    Folder synchronisation problem with Lightroom and Dropbox

    lemerv

      I have a 1TB Dropbox account on which I store both my Lightroom catalogue and all the original images. I keep running into a problem: when I try to synchronize a folder in Lightroom, the dialogue box shows something like the below.

      Notice that Lightroom thinks that all the photos in my "Originals" folder are new images, even though it also does NOT think the same images in the catalogue are missing? I have a feeling it's something to do with dropbox perhaps changing folder paths in the background so that Lightroom gets confused and thinks that the folder is new, rather than the same.

       

      Is anyone able to help with this? Is there a fix/work around?

      Thanks
