I'm in the process of syncing a new devices and noticed something strange.

My "Main" Moneydance computer has around 1200 mdtxn files in the \safe\tiksync\in folder.
I sync to Dropbox and in its \safe\tiksync\in folder, there are over 17,000 of these files and its taking hours to perform the initial sync to my new device.

Is there any way to reduce these manually, or would it be simpler to remove the sync and start a fresh one?

    Two ways:

    The first is this:

    Toolbox extension, advanced mode. Force refresh / push sync data.... wait 10 mins... Restart MD, then restart other devices..

    Let us know how it goes...?
