Update changes dropbox files location

Update changes dropbox files location

It appears that the latest update to Dropbox for MacOS changes the location of the Dropbox folder.  Is this correct?  Our system is designed based on the current folder location, and we need to avoid this being changed as a result of the update.

 

Do others have experience with this?  I understand it is intended to increase security.  but does it do this without confirmation by the administrator during the install process?

 

Thanks for any feedback.

Yes, that's correct. When you receive the update for macOS your Dropbox folder will be moved to Library/CloudStorage.
