    I am trying to transfer a folder with music files from Dropbox to my Android phone. Previously I made the folder available off line and it appeared in my phone where I could access it through my music app .

    Today I followed the same procedure and Dropbox confirmed that the files in that folder were all available off line, but they do not show up when I search in a files app. I gather from a Google search that there has been an update to Dropbox. Is there another solution? Google suggested an export selection, but that's only available for an individual file, and the folder contains about 80, so that obviously won't work!

    I want my music back! Please rescue me.

    Use your default folder you have build in your cell, that is how I always double check, also double check with dropbox.com url :)

    Well I just tried the export option using the Dropbox app and had no issues with it downloading onto my cell phone. You can long press on all 80 music files and choose export. And my music app sees them all. Hopefully this will help you out.
