Project root in Dropbox directory.


1. Project is located in a folder shared via DropBox.

2. Created files disappearing.

3. Corrupted files without names appears. 

4. In the Project Structure tool window, non-existent folders appear.

5. IDE shows warnings that the file was edited externally.


DropBox constantly makes operations with the assigned directory and doesn't allow other applications to read the directory correctly.


To mitigate most problems, switch Dropbox Preferences | Sync to Available offline.
