Selective Sync/Choose Folder not opening

New member | Level 2

Hi Guys, I have folders on Dropbox.com I am trying to move to my computer

I have followed the online tutorial about preferences/Sync/Selective Sync, when I get this far and click on the Choose Folder it wont open , i have a slight flicker and thats it

Is there anyother way to have these folders moved to my Mac

 

Thank you

Hey there @Welshie; thanks for using Dropbox and welcome to our Community!

 

Could you let me know if this persists after rebooting your device?

 

If it does, please send me a screenshot of the app's exact status from your menu bar along with its exact version and one of the last screen you can get to in order to investigate further. 

 

Thanks!
