I dual-boot Ubuntu 14.04 and Windows 8 with a shared NTFS storage partition. My dropbox folder is on this shared partition.
First, I notice that whenever I switch back and forth between the two OSes, Dropbox has to re-index everything. Do you know why?
Second, even though Dropbox syncs and indexes very quickly in Windows, it never finishes indexing in Ubuntu. The official Dropbox help suggests that this is a permission / ownership problem, so I change the ownership of my shared partition (and all of the sub-dir) to me instead of root. Still, the problem persists.
What to do in this situation?
