I just got the new M2 MacBook Pro and I migrated all my data over from my old laptop.  When I started Dropbox, I expected it to use the ~/Library/CloudStorage location, but it set it to the old style ~/Dropbox.  How do I make it use the CloudStorage location so it matches my other machines?

The new update is being slowly rolled out and is not yet available on all machines. If you want to get it early you can enroll in the beta, and then Dropbox will push the update when they determine that your machine is ready.

I thought it was out as Release since all of my other computers have it. That kicked it in to gear.  Thanks!
