A script to find Dropbox conflicts
Authored by: Anonymous on May 18, '11 09:28:41AM

Works as described... too well.

I had scores and scores of "Conflicted Copies" that kept piling on my desktop requiring me to relaunch finder rather than close each one.

Ditto! Maybe modifying the script so the conflicts are moved to the Trash or a designated folder. I dunno....

Haha, mine did the same.

I did consider making it delete the files, but sometimes the version marked as conflicted is the one I actually want to keep. So, deleting them isn't the solution for me.
If it's right for you, by all means modify the script.

:D

What about just making a smart folder that searches for file name contains "conflicted"? The Path Bar at the bottom tells where a file resides, ⌘doubleclick shows the file in a new Finder window.
At least that works for me.
