The dropbox app on my MBA M1 took 1.5 GB from my RAM while it sits idle for more than an hour. Will follow up with a screenshot.
I uninstalled mine that I got using the default online installer and tried the recommended offline installation. The dropbox app alone still took about the same amount of RAM even if it's not syncing.
And from today we have also Adobe Illustrator ready for M1:
Sorry @JOfE, there's nothing 'deranged' about people not renewing a subscription for a product that's no longer meeting their needs. Thats... thats pretty silly, dude. At least they bothered to leave a reply here so that if Dropbox cares, they can see why.
I finally realized today that the memory issues I've been having on my M1 MacMini are due to a memory-hungry DropBox....just like others in this forum have noted. CleanMyMac keeps alerting me that DropBox is RAM-Heavy....it's using 2.5Gb of RAM just sitting idle. I am hoping one of these days DropBox will fix this as I rely on, perhaps too heavily, DropBox for all my day-to-day files. Fortunately, I also have a local hard drive and another cloud service back up since it's not good to rely on just one.
Last week I "un-subscribed" to "dropbox premium" or whatever-the-heck-name they're calling it now.
Keeping the "free" tier for my iPhone - cos Apple ensures it runs correctly...but that's all!
I moved to iCloud Drive and have ZERO complaints!
I wasn't suggesting it was deranged to for a customer to leave a product that didn't suit theirs needs. That would be an odd thing to say. I'd still be on CoralDRAW.
My point is that a product's development follows the needs of the majority of its customers. Threaten or leave all you want.
