Hey, I’ve got a little problem. I was using Box Sync and read an article here about Box Drive and thought I would give it a try. However, before installing BD it was suggested that I uninstall Box Sync, so I did. After using BD, I didn't like it as good as BS. It was just taking too long to navigate through the folders/files. So, I uninstall BD and reinstalled BS. But now it's giving me a message to "Select another folder location". And the current BS folder is already in use. So, my question is. Is there a way to use the BS folder that I had originally? I only used BD for 2 days so all of my files are already in the BS folder except a few that need syncing..
Solved! Go to Solution.
Well, this is what I'm doing.
I moved the older sync folder to my desktop (all 38 gigs) and reinstall Box Sync. So far it's still calculating time remaining, 8300+ files and counting.. This will take a long time to sync I believe. But it should do the job.
While I appreciate the tip on what to do to "fix" this, I find this to be an immature feature of the platform. Both OneDrive and DropBox handle this without any challenges whatsoever (re-install the desktop client and re-sync to an existing folder). But Box makes you remove the old folder first so that it can completely rebuild the local folder structures. Silly, unintuitive, and very disappointing.
