Hey @Gussj, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Can you please hover over the Dropbox icon in your menu bar, and let me know what the sync status and version of the Dropbox app is?

 

Let me know and we'll go from there.

Thanks for that, @Gussj!

 

Would it actually be possible for you to upgrade your computer's OS to mac OS 13.3 or higher? 

 

That should resolve this issue for you.

Monterey is the max I can go to.

Hi @Gussj, sorry to jump in here! 

 

It might sound trivial, but have you checked both your Dropbox account space, and your device's free space, to make sure you have enough available to sync these files?

Hi @Gussj, since you can't update your OS, could you then try an advanced re-install too?
