Hey @generdude, thanks for using Dropbox and welcome to our Community!

 

Note that with the new version of the desktop app for Mac OS, your Dropbox folder in Finder will now be found under Locations instead of Favorites.

After performing the update, I dragged Dropbox from Locations back to Favorites. Now I am unable to bring Dropbox back to Locations. Is there a way for me to re-perform the update?

Hey @JJM3, let's jump right into this! 

 

Let's check where your Dropbox folder is located, just in case it's still located in Locations. 

 

Can you access your app's preferences, and check under the Sync tab, to see the location of your Dropbox folder, please?

 

Keep me posted!

Thank you for your quick reply, @Megan!

I've check and the location of my Dropbox folder is: 

/Users/.../Library/CloudStorage/Dropbox

Hey @JJM3, awesome! 

 

In this case, the app is still using the updated version, no need for you to worry about that. It just seems like you would need to customize your Finder sidebar, in order to add Dropbox there. 

 

And change from Favorites to Locations. 

 

Have you tried any of these steps found on the Mac's forum?

Thanks. To add Dropbox back to the Locations in Finder Sidebar, I opened finder Preferences and in Sidebar tab checked Cloud Storage. When I did this I saw Dropbox come back on the Locations in Finder Sidebar.
