I'm trying to relink Dropbox to my Dropbox folder.

New member | Level 2

I'm trying to relink Dropbox to my Dropbox folder but it says there is already a dropbox folder in there when I'm using the move tool. I had reloaded the desktop app and it put a new dropbpx folder without asking me where I wanted it. (not useful). So how do I get it to look at the place it used to be?

Yes, that is exactly the problem I have, but the solution is not elegant. This should have been fixed years ago. Thanks for finding the post, my search did not turn that one up.
