Is it possible to see which files are being currently synced? (Searching around for badged icons won't work.)

For example, large files that are within different folders that just got added to the queue.

No, not possible.

Can't see it on the web interface or on any of the apps on linked devices.

Your only near option currently is to see what has been done after the fact by checking out the recent events page on Dropbox.

For anyone looking at this question in 2014+, you can now see what is being synced (on a Mac at least—I don't know the answer for Windows, but I'm sure someone will provide that answer).

Hold Alt, and click on the Dropbox icon in menubar. This will show you what is currently being synced.

I'm trying to figure out the same thing. best I've got so far is to look at the sync icons on the folders.

You can at least narrow it down to "which folder contains the files which are currently syncing"...

In my case it's the "Camera Uploads" folder, so I'm going to look on the dropbox website to see what the largest files in that folder are... then check whether they're on my local machine. probably some videos or something.
