Dropbox App Sync even when no changes in data

I have been advised that my Dropbox App on the My Cloud Mirror is transmitting between 500 and 700KB every 30 minutes. This is the sync frequency selected.

What surprises me is that Dropbox itself on my PC does not exhibit this behaviour.

Does this App use a method of checking what has changed that would cause such volumes to be transferred?

When I observed this happening I watched as it undertook one of these synchronisation settings and it was displaying files that have not been changed in a long time on my PC.

Given that all the MCM copy of Dropbox is required to do is to keep a copy of the files in Dropbox, can anyone explain this behaviour?


I haven’t seen this case on the community before.

Let’s see if any of the users can share some information about it. Also, you can try to contact WD Support for direct assistance on this case.
