Hi, i have been using Dropbox for years and i am very satisfied.
I was noticing that Dropbox uses a relative high amout of memory even when the application was doing nothing.
My Dropbox-folder contains 667 files and 100 folders using 574MB.
This article high-cpu-usage mentions reasons for high CPU/RAM usage, but 1/4 GB of memory when doing nothing and a low number of files - is that ok ?
I spotted this behaviour when investigation the same issue with Microsoft Teams - Teams - High memory usage
Below is a screenshot of my joblist.
Any opinions on this behaviour ?
As stated in my first message my Dropbox folder holds now 660 files in 99 folders (did a little clean up yesterday)
Antivirus/Security is from Cisco and it also takes a lot of ressources, but nothing compared to Chrome and the abominable Teams 🙂
I have attached a fresh shot fom today when the pc is almost idle.
No scannings are active.
