    We have same problem for the past week. After creating/updating files, it often takes a couple of hours to show up on other devices(PC's). It's impossible to work together in our business team.

    yes, this is a serious limitation of Box compared to Dropbox / Google. I am considering to stop using Box due to the extremely slow sync time.

    I also have experiencing the same issue across multiple devices recently. This thread has been marked ANSWERED but where is the answer?

    Hi Everyone,

    Welcome to the Box Community, I'm happy to help!

    To confirm, have you tried to connect your devices to a different wifi/network to see if that makes any difference with Box Drive's performance?

    Also, can you make sure that you have the latest version of Box Drive on your computer?

    Let me know how it goes and if you have questions.

    Regards,

    Yes, I tried it on a different network.  The issue is also happening with different users with multiple devices on different networks.

    I am also noticing that even after a day, Box drive has not synced with was on the Box website.   This is more than a small delay

    Everyone is running Box Drive Version 2.30.87

    This is also a huge issue within my organization. Files usually update immediately on the website, but BoxDrive takes hours to sync. I often use both my laptop and desktop at the same time for different tasks, but the impossibly slow sync between devices is a major issue. This obviously has an impact when trying to collaborate with other team members as well. 

    This is very clearly a common issue experienced by a large majority of users and should be properly investigated and improved on the Box dev side.

    it seems like there is no support here at all! I have the same problem with very slow sync, but apparently BOX doesn't care about this and they are only after paying customers. I'm slowly going to try something different. bye bye box!

    I just got a new computer and my sync has been going for over a week.  I have the latest version and I am hard wired to my modem getting gig-bit speed.  What else can I try?
