Apps and Installations
Have a question about a Dropbox app or installation? Reach out to the Dropbox Community and get solutions, help, and advice from members.
Behavior: Dropbox starts, logs in and start synchronizing. 10-20 seconds in, it crashes and a dialog comes up "Dropbox unexpectedly quit", which allows me to click it away or restart Dropbox (which then results in a crash again). So Dropbox does not run/work anymore.
Environment: Apple MacBook Pro, Apple Silicon M1
I saw this crash behavior first with the beta 156.3.4894, then moved back to using stable 155.4.5495 where everything was working fine.
Now with stable 156.4.4908 apparently the crash bug has been brought over from beta and is not fixed.
Are there any tricks, configuration or a workaround available? I am backing up several drives and my main data to Dropbox, so working from the web or via browser online is a no-go.
Hey @friendly_w, welcome to our Community!
Do you use selective sync for your content on the app? Keep in mind that if your app is syncing more than the soft limit of 300K files, that could be the culprit there.
Also, when did this start happening?
Let me know more!
Hey guys, I hope you're doing well!
If you're still facing this issue, would it be okay for me to reach out via email, in order for us to have a closer look into this?
Hi @friendly_w, I just sent you an email.
I'll see you there! Cheers!
Hi @Sharkez, I just sent you an email.
I'd be happy to look into this with you there.
This is happening on three of our computers currently. We have uninstalled/reinstalled with no luck. The "unexpectedly quit" message started popping up immediately after the update. Any luck with this anyone?
