Dropbox stops syncing if you have a lot of files. I have 1 million files in my Dropbox folder. Do this to fix it:

Add this line
fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 15000000
to this file:
and then start this command:
sudo sysctl --system

This is necessary if you reinstall your PC where you have to retrieve all your files from Dropbox again.

Subsequently, syncing can sometimes stop, especially if you switch off your PC in between. Then you have to delete the Dropbox cache folder. Delete the contents of the ".dropbox cache" folder that is in your Dropbox folder.
