Dropbox Says "Syncing" But Won't Synchronize

My Dropbox has been saying "Sync..." for the last three days. But files hasn't been synchronized. I restarted Dropbox several times and restarted my computer several times. But every time, it just gets stuck at "Sync...".

It wasn't until I noticed that my computer clock was way off that I realized it's due to the computer time. There was a power failure and it must have knocked the time off on my computer. Weird things is that I had set the computer to automatically synchronize with Internet Time.

After going to "Control Panel" -> "Clock, Language, and Region" -> "Date and Time" -> "Internet Time" -> "Change settings...", I clicked "Update now", which synchronizes the computer time with Internet Time.

Once the clock is synchronized, I started Dropbox and it immediately started synchronizing the files.

It's unfortunate that Dropbox doesn't tell me that the computer clock is wrong. I even clicked on its "View sync issues" and it said no error.
