Dropbox version v110.3425 in macOS 11 is not showing integration in the finder menu. It is also not showing smart sync notifications in finder windows. Anyone else have this problem?

I solved! And I confirm from my side, it's a findeer problem with MacOs update.

 

This was my way:

 

1. Go dropbox folder in your finder

2. right click

3. go to "quick actions" (under tags) and click on submenu "customize"

4. a window "extentions" will open.

5. On left index go to "Finder extensions"

6. Deactivate and re-activate "Dropbox Finder Extension"

 

Now all works just fine!

Great Tip @Tomcor ! Impressed. You are on to something. You just need Dropbox or Apple to fix it.

@Tomcor 's tip saves you from restarting/relaunching the finder every time the contextual menus are lost. I keep the system preference window open to toggle the 'Dropbox Finder' integration check box throughout the day.

 

This feature is core. Dropbox needs to fix it.

That toggling the Dropbox Finder extensions on/off worked for me too.

Still, buggy buggy... I hope Dropbox fiexs this asap. I have ALL my files mirrored on dropbox, and this kinda stuff makes me very nervous.

In my experience the syncing still works, it just the right click menu that's gone. But annoying to have to keep toggling it during the day. Please fix Dropbox.

I don't know if this is a general solution, but I just downloaded Dropbox again and installed it (without removing my old copy). The problem went away. 

Need more support?
