I am on 160.3.4611. When will it start to migrate my Dropbox folder to ~/Library/CloudStorage?
Is there something I need to do to?

I had to sign out and start over to get the beta to apply the CloudStorage method, as others have, but that was several months ago and I thought it had changed.

Beta Build 157.3.4719 was the original one that was supposed to change the location of the folder according to the notes that came with it.


I just installed that build over my existing build and after 'jumping through a few hoops' it was automatically moved and the old location was removed.


Why not try the suggestion from Michael B.10 and remove and reinstall it?

Surely we shouldn't have to uninstall and re-install? I'm wary of doing that as don't trust Dropbox enough to not get issues if I do try that.

I agree.  I have 50 users and need a less complicated migration.  Has anyone had it migrate automatically?

Need more support?
