My company recently upgraded my iMac to one with the Big Sur OS (v11.2.3) and none of the images in my Camera Uploads folder, for example, are showing thumbnail pics, only generic icons for JPGs.
However, if I open up an image and close it, then a thumbnail picture shows. I can't open and close the hundreds of images I have on Dropbox, so is there something quicker I can do to solve that problem?

Hallo, Jay --
It seems to be only the Camera Uploads folder which isn't showing thumbnails and, since I wrote in, some random ones have shown up. But many are still just generic icons. I don't think I have Smart Sync on. Files are online only until I copy them onto an external HD.
In that case, how can I stop Smart Sync?
If I can't stop it, does that mean that I have to copy all the Camera Uploads to an external and THEN they'll show up online as well?
I will try that, Jay. But if I make the folder "local," does that mean I have to manually move them to Dropbox to make sure they're backed up? Or will that happen in the background (backup to DB as well as having them also on my computer)?
