    This seems like a permissions issue; I see that you're creating/saving to C:\, but that doesn't mean there's not still an AD, or perhaps Dropbox? permission limitation... More information is needed.


    Cheers
    yes, I was able to copy/rename/delete old and import new sheets..

    Can you create or edit a file in that location using any other app?
    I was able to save a word doc to the same directory. Closed/opened/edited/resaved document.

    Lots of different types of permissions. Can you create a Sheet Set in a folder not set up for saving documents in the cloud like C:\DWG?

    It shouldn't be. Windows sees it as just a folder. The app that run in the background syncs the local folder with the online one. But you need to make sure that the path is correct and that you have create rights.

    The drawing files and .dst files that I create do not reside on my local hard drive but in the cloud (dropbox). That's what I have been doing since starting work here. This hasn't been a problem till now. Am I using dropbox incorrectly or has a setting changed that I need to look at? I think I know just enough about dropbox to be dangerous..

    Have you tried exiting Dropbox first, then creating a new Sheet Set in that folder? Without Dropbox running it may be just a regular folder. Of course then it wouldn't put the Sheet Set in the cloud. No telling what would happen next time Dropbox was running again.

    If that's what your goal is why not use Autodesk 360?

    That's not how Dropbox works. It creates a folder on your hard drive and labels it "Dropbox". Then a program runs in your system tray that watches the folder for any changes. If you add a file, the service copies the file to your online Dropbox account. If you modify a file it is copied to dropbox.com as well. In your png from the second post, the "Dropbox" folder is located at "C:\Users\fivestarjasonb\dropbox". Open that folder in Windows Explorer and test if you can create a file there by rt+clk>New>Text Fiile. When using the folder in AutoCAD, you may need to make sure that you are logged into Dropbox first.

    On 12/15/2016 I recieved notice from Dropbox "Your Public folder will soon become a private folder".
    Don't know if it had any affect on it. The way they describe it I thought is would only affect others access online, but who knows.
