DropBox Public folder files not accessible on PC or iDevices

Files in my DropBox Public folder are not accessible [visible] from my PCs and iDevices. All files accessible/editable from MacMini [OSX 10.8.4]. Public folder is visible.

All other DropBox folders/files accessible OK.

 How do I enable access?

This from DropBox...

Please note: New Dropbox accounts created after October 4, 2012 no longer have a Public folder. Don't worry! Every account created prior to this date will still have a Public folder.

Double check the permissions.  Perhaps go to dropbox online and check the permissions for those folders and files.

Read the rest of the instructions...   https://www.dropbox.com/help/16/en  You can still get a public folder.

Problem is not public folder - all devices have one. Problem is (as above) files not accessible except on MacMini. Can see public folder on all - just cannot see files!

Has to do with permissions *and* understanding the Mac Dropbox icons local vs. cloud.

I have been extensively testing out dropbox, google drive and windows skydrive.  I struggled because dropbox is twice as expensive.  In the end, I ended up paying for dropbox because it really did work the best.  Google drive constantly had syncing errors and I couldn't trust it between multiple devices.  It was also slower to sync.  A note on speed, they were about the same until I found the setting on dropbox where you can adjust the download/upload speed.

Any of these have some hidden items as you found out but I believe dropbox is the winner and I just paid for it..
