Dropboxer
Thanks for using Dropbox! The desktop client is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.
 

Features in this update: 

  • We're transitioning to using GUIDs to manage the taskbar icon.
    • Some users will notice their taskbar icon position preferences will not be remembered during the transition.
  • Optimization of large uploads has resumed after restart of the Dropbox client.
  • Transfers can now be sent by link or email during the creation process.
  • Sharing of backup content within the Dropbox desktop app has been suppressed.
    • Sharing of non-backup content within the Dropbox desktop app remains the same.

 
Fixes in this update: 

  • A typo has been corrected in the alert dialogue prompted when users attempt to start backup for a team account with admin disabled.
  • Issues with changing folders for an external drive backup when the folder name contains # has been fixed.

What is the correct way of reporting bugs?

 

I am using this build on my M1 MacBook Air and my Dropbox folder has been migrated to ~/Library/CloudStorage/Dropbox

All is working OK (after reconfiguring third party apps that sync with Dropbox, to use the new location).

 

One of these apps is Moneydance which writes transaction details to a syncstore folder on Dropbox.

I have set the folder containing the Moneydance files to "Make available offline" but I keep finding files inside it are online only with a cloud+arrow icon.

Getting message "Couldn't start Dropbox" after reboot.

 

Message says "Contact Dropbox Support with the following info for help", then a link which gives this in a Textedit file:

M1 MacBook Air running macOS 12.3.1

After writing the previous post, I launched Dropbox form the apps folder, and it started OK. I had tried this before posting but it hadn't worked.

When are you going to fix the Mac OS 12.3 offline files issue?

This build (and several recent betas) supports the 12.3 offline files solution (ie the move to ~/Library/CloudStorage/Dropbox) but you may have sign out/uninstall/reinstall/sign in to make it happen..... as I did. 

Need more support?
