Fix Dropbox folder watch limit


 / Published in: Bash
 

If you're watching a lot of files/folders in Linux, you may end up exceeding the limit of folders Linux lets DB watch. However, it's quite easy to increase this limit.

  1. #Run this command and restart dropbox
  2. echo 100000 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches
  3.  
  4. #Add the command to the "/etc/rc.local", without the "sudo", to get it to be applied automatically upon each boot.
