Deleted Account re-appears

Hi there, my moneydance was running fine. Using it many years from now and the sync is via Dropbox folder. However I'm using Macs but not once at the time. Now I did create a new account and put in some transactions. Once done the next day on the other mac the account just appears with another "restored account " ? I did delete the restored account but somehow it keeps reappearing on both macs. I did delete via the Tools->Accounts selection.

I'm using version 2023.01 (build 5006) on both macs.

What can I do to get rid of this "junk" ? Any tool or cleaning procedure available ?

many thanks Tom

    I think the best think is to refresh sync.

    On the master. Toolbox extension. Update mode. Advanced menu. Force refresh / push sync. Wait. Restart MD. Restart the other Md.

    Now does the problem reoccur?

    Hi Stuart,

    Could you give a hand on this ? I can’t find the described function to refresh stage sync … which menu I need to use ?

    Thx Tom

    just a user, as Stuart said:

    Update mode. Advanced menu. Force refresh / push sync. Wait. Restart MD. Restart the other Md.

    So, you click the update mode (in red). Then click on MENU:Advanced Options.

    Under that is:
    Force a refresh/PUSH of your local dataset to sync (only when master sync) ---- i.e. you are on the master dataset.

    I don't know how to make it any more clear. Does that help?

    Wait for 5-10 minutes if your network isn't very fast before restart.

    The update mode checkbox is to insure that the person using toolbox is aware they are changing their dataset. You made a backup, right?

    Yes I did so … don’t want to loose years of data :-) I also activated the backup function when MD is closing. Thx again for your help ...
