Hello, 

 

I noticed if I map the main root Dropbox folder as a disk, the context menu disappears on the mapped drive, but I can still see it on the "real/physical" path, you can see it in the video below:

This is an expected behavior? Here is the OS version that I have right now:

Windows 10 22H2 (OS Build 19045.2486)

Dropbox v166.4.2920

Thanks!

The context menu is only registered for the Dropbox folder and its contents. While your mapped drive may be pointing to the same location, as far as the right-click is concerned it's a different location, so it doesn't show the Dropbox options.
