    I also have this problem.    You really need to improve your sync error messages to give the paths that do not sync.

    Bryan - on the screenshot above, if you hover over the file icon the path will appear after a couple of seconds.  Agree that troubleshooting could be made easier though.

    I am having the same problem.  Is there a way to get my files from historical syncs?

    Thanks for your help.

    I have been getting this error for months.

    When I hover over the place where the file name should be it says "Unknown path."

    Is there any solution on the horizon?

    I am having this same problem whenever I create a new folder on my computer.  If I upload through the box.com it works ok, but I would like to use box sync.  I see no way to contact support, please help.

    Similar issue. A specific folder got into some kind of weird sync state where my local folder is decoupled from the shared remote, and I also can't write to that location locally. Other folders seem ok, and web interface still seems to properly function in managing the shared folder.

    I think I have found a solution to this problem!

    One of the parent folders of the files that are failing to sync is marked in the box.com web interface as unsynced. 

    You have to go over each folder until you find the right one.  Right Click > More Actions > and click on 'Sync' (meaning it was not being synced un-till now. If it was being synced it would say 'Unsync').

    If the syncing doesn't get fixed immediately / within a few minutes / the same day...  restarting your computer will probably help.

     

    I just tried creating a new folder on the box.com web interface and for some reason the folder is marked by default as un-synced. Not knowing this, it's possible that at some point I had moved some files around and created that parent folder in the web interface and this had caused all the syncing problems.
