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?

This seems to have worked! Meaning Finder Integration came back and preview is able to open 'smart-sync' files again.

 

Thank you!

 

For future ref:

 

1. Kill all dropbox processes

In Activity Monitor, select all Dropbox process and Force Quit

3. Restart Finder
