Moved Dropbox to D drive and file explorer stopped working

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi, my laptop was getting out of space so I decided to move my dropbox files to D drive. After this, my file explorer stopped working, and for me to do my job, I need it working.

What can I do? I tried all of the suggestions on the internet, and still nothing.

Were you manually moving the folder from one drive to the other, or did you use the Move option within Dropbox Preferences?

Hey there @Loris_A & @uschi2 - are you still having issues with this?

If you do, can you send me a screenshot of any errors you might be getting so I can investigate further? 

Thanks!
