"Failed to acquire folder lock"

I was creating a series of pages a few days ago—the first 10 worked perfectly, then things stopped updating from my dropbox sync. It looks like Dropbox is functioning fine, and I haven't changed any of my process for adding to blot, so I'm not sure what I broke!

When I try to reset/fix my folder on https://blot.im/settings/client/fix, I get an orange error message that says "Failed to acquire folder lock." Any advice?

I'm getting the same error message when I try to disconnect from Dropbox too.

I'm also getting the same message, and my Dropbox files haven't synced since yesterday.

Same here, and it's not possible to change back-ends to git or Google Drive when the Dropbox connection is in this state.

Same here, and I can't even delete the blog and start again.
