I chose dropbox just because it gets on an external disk, can't anymore? I'm totally frustrated,
last year 3 months didn't work at all for MacOs ..
Why on earth would Dropbox try and force storage of over 100GB of data inside the user /Library directory?
This isn't Dropbox's doing; it's a new restriction put in place by Apple. Changing the location of your Dropbox folder is no longer supported by macOS.
Hi @Sami k, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
What version of Mac OS are you running, as well as the Dropbox desktop application?
Where is the Dropbox folder currently located on your machine?
This will help me to assist further!
Normally my dropbox is SSD external storage.
Now it is in macbook?? i cant move it? "This version of macOS reguires dropbox folders to be stored here"
Could you confirm the exact folder location for the Dropbox folder on your Mac?

Another forum user gives a pretty good description of why this is required now. Simply put, it's a restriction from Apple; not Dropbox.
Just updated my macos to 12.5 for security reasons and it moved my main dropbox folder to my internal hard drive and won't allow me to keep it on my external drive. This is ridiculous! I don't have the space internally! This has be to fixed
