"The invite to [folder] is no longer available" in Dropbox menubar drop down doesn't go away

New member | Level 1

I'm on OS X and in the menu bar, I have the Dropbox menu, when I click it it brings down all the activity for my Dropbox. Above "Recently Changed" it has a sticky row which doesn't scroll or go away. It says:

"The invite to [folder] is no longer available"
5 days ago • Personal

And it just won't go away. I can't click it to make it go away or do anything with it. Any ideas?

It will fall off on its own as you receive other notifications.

I have the same sticky notification which doesn't go away for 5 days.

I agree, this is obnoxious. I don't want to be constantly reminded that I'm missing out on all of those really cool files and folders I could've been invited to :(

Same issue in Windows 7. The notification has been there for a good week despite many, many new files having been synced since removing myself from that shared folder, so it isn't still there because it is a relatively "new" notification.

I'm also seeing this same notice that won't go away after 6+ days.  Has anyone solved it?  I hope Dropbox can add an X or something to to dismiss notices we don't care about anymore.

Notices will fall off in time, or will be replaced by other notices as they occur. They cannot be removed manually.

Rich R: With your lack of comprehension of what people are complaining about, you should apply for a job as a support technician.

Same issue. Incredibly annoying. Very obvious poor design by Dropbox. Surprised they haven't caught and fixed this.
