I have the DropBox windows app installed on multiple computers. Each of them link to the same account.

Somehow, my account was disassociated with a shared folder. I see it in the event log as

You left the shared folder Folder Name.

Is there any way to determine which computer the event was triggered from?

  • No way that I've been able to find.

  • Could the disassociation coincide with the authentication issues at Dropbox on June 19? blog.dropbox.com/?p=821

  • The 'left folder' event occurred at 12:44 on 6/20. Looks like that's outside the window of authentication issues. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Not through the web interface or any other DropBox application.

However, I submitted a ticket to DropBox support and they were able to tell me the source of the event. Then the following exchange occurred.

Me: Is there any way I could have figured this out on my own or is this info available only from the back-end?

DB Support: It's only available to us here in tech support.

  • Good on you for finding that, but that sucks. That could be a really useful tool for maintaining account security.
