Ability to force sync of Box Drive
Currently, Drive relies on event poll for updating cached contents, and if events (updates on web) are not picked up by Drive in a timely manner, then local contents get outdated (out of sync with web). As a workaround, we want the ability to force sync of a selected folder (maybe add a right click menu to force sync/refresh cache).
Thanks for the suggestion! We’re looking into this. Stay tuned!
The slow syncing is really problematic. It often takes several minutes for files to be synced to our users. A file should be synced as soon as it's saved.
Came here for this and it was at the top of the list. Seems crazy that when you go looking for something in a drive folder that you've seen on the browser version you can't force update or even see the status of your sync. Sometimes I'll search for the filename on box which can jog the folder to update.
Can we please get some updates on this issue? It makes box really problematic if the desktop box drive does not sync with what's online. Do you have a workaround or some suggestions?
