Dropbox App keeps closing from IMac menu bar - not launching

Dropbox App keeps closing from IMac menu bar - not launching

Explorer | Level 3
I have uninstalled the App & used an App cleaner to ensure that it has been completely removed as DropBox kept showing the following statement causing interruptions on other pages in use & crashing my IMac.
Turn on accessibility (Flashing on & off)
 
I have downloaded & installed Dropbox App again but the App still os not working as expected.
 
The Dropbox icon keeps flashing up & then disappearing on the top menu bar. When present if I click on the icon the folder I am expecting to see is available and the Dropbox reads that it is starting, then syncing & then disappears again.
 
When I launch Dropbox from the lower IMac dock it opens the folder but does not show the options that I previously had with send with transfer the only choice.

Hey @Natasha111, thanks for your post today.

Can you try performing a more advanced reinstall of the Dropbox application, to see if that helps?

Let me know how it goes!

Had some great help from the dropbox team, running code in the terminal & reinstalling - seems to have done the trick.

Thanks for your help.
