My Dropbox folder is located on an internal NTFS partition. Unfortunately dropbox is not able to sync the folder. The status bar icon indicates that the service is running and it keeps saying "Downloading files". But there is no change in the number of downloaded files.
The strange thing is that it should not be a permission problem.
[orschiro@thinkpad ~]$ cat /etc/fstab # # /etc/fstab: static file system information # ... UUID=01CD2ABB65E17DE0 /run/media/orschiro/Windows\7 ntfs-3g uid=orschiro,gid=users 0 0
[orschiro@thinkpad Dropbox]$ ls -la total 167045 drwxrwxrwx 1 orschiro users 8192 21. Nov 00:25 . drwxrwxrwx 1 orschiro users 28672 20. Nov 23:02 ..
Any ideas what I can try?

So I figured out that there should not be any spaces in the mount path which was the case for mine "/run/media/orschiro/Windows\7". Without the space Dropbox can access the sync folder flawlessly.
