Restore "Move To Dropbox" to context menu.

Helpful | Level 6

Have 2 PCs with Dropbox.  Both are Win10 fully up to date.  Both running the same version of DB (93.4.273).  PC #1 has "Move to Dropbox" when I right click on a file.  PC #2 does not have that listed in the context menu.  Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the client software on PC #2 to know avail.  Any one know the way to restore that listing?

You're right-clicking a file that's already in Dropbox, which is why you see options for Share, Send with Transfer, Copy Dropbox Link, etc. Those options only appear for files in your Dropbox. The Move to Dropbox option only appears on files not in your Dropbox.

And you're right-clicking an item that's outside of the Dropbox folder? Can you show us a screenshot of the context menu from PC #2?

I know it's very different than the first, but "Move to Dropbox" is missing.
