Hey there @Bigsupman, I hope you're well today!

 

Is it possible that the backup was disabled for the Documents folder at all?

 

Can you access settings to check if the Documents is still checked by:

  1. Clicking the Dropbox icon in your system tray.
  2. Click the profile pic/initials icon in the top right of the window.
  3. Choose "Preferences" from the menu.
  4. Go to the "Backups" tab.
  5. Click the "Manage backup" option.

Let me know what you find!
