On my explorer is not only dropbox but "Dropbox-Namespace-ExtencionRole.Personal"

Before it was always onlt Dropbox.

Is that alright?

Hey @Henk Mulder, thanks for posting!

I'm not 100% sure what you're referring to there, could you send me a screenshot of what you're seeing?

Also, it sounds like this is locally on your computer with the desktop app installed, is that right?

Keep me posted!

I've had that issue before too, but I don't think I've seen it recently, or it might only appear in specific cases.

 

A quick Google search seems to suggest that uninstalling/reinstalling Dropbox will sometimes fix it, but it's probably not worth the hassle.

 

Do you have a screenshot of it, by chance?

Hey there @Henk Mulder; thanks for posting on our Community!

If I want to be honest here, I've also bumped into this a couple of times in the past on my Windows 10 machine.

It was usually resolved by rebooting my computer; have you tried this yourself? 

For full disclosure, I was, and still am, using the beta versions of our desktop application when I noticed that. 

What version of the app are you using exactly?
