Little brown boxes in my icons (and Dropbox) despite clicking "Always keep on device" in OneNote

Copper Contributor

I'm seeing little brown boxes in the corners of many of my icons, even with files inside my DropBox folder. I know this is caused by OneNote. I clicked on my OneNote folder and selected "Always Keep Files on this Device" but the brown boxes are still appearing, even inside Dropbox, which is weird because they are not cloud folders. Can one interfere with the other? Is there a way to fix this?

Re-check "Always keep on device" settings: Double-check that you've enabled "Always keep on device" for each notebook and section where you want to keep the data locally.
