Right, I managed to do the first part of your instructions, but where you then said,
"and have set my App to open files and folders in Finder:"

I can't seem to find this. What do you click on from start to finish to get there...? Thank you.

Hey @NuggetMagic, @Righ is referring to defaulting the app to opening in their Finder. 

 

You can do this by going to the General tab in your desktop app's Preferences (as shown in their screenshot). 

 

You'll find this after clicking on the Dropbox icon, selecting your avatar that's on the top right of the menu, and choosing Preferences. 

 

However, the issue should now be resolved. 

 

Could you check if the issue persists for you and let me know?

After I did the first part of the original instructions, it seems it is working for me so that's great. I updated my apple mac and I'm wondering if the update removed the access to files got Dropbox.... Worth remembering....

Yes, that's generally how I gave default Finder access to Dropbox, but in my Dropbox app I have two Avatar icons, one at top right, as you say, and one at bottom left.  However, the one at top right doesn't give me access to my Preferences, but the other one does. Ortherwise the instructions are as you gave, and I've provided screen shots of the correct settings in my previous posts. 

 

As for the Issue - yes, it's still working okay - three days now, but I'll update you if it fails again with the error as in the thread title.
