Reading through all of this muckity muck for the third time and nothing seems be the solution. The share and link option were always visible until recently, now they are gone.

 

Yes I have the latest version

 yes there are shared folders in DB now (share and link options missing on those too)

 

 so frustrated with something that should be drop dead simple

 

 Can you please help?

While I was getting the screen shots, I noticed that DP had stopped syncing for some reason.  I resumed syncing and checked for share and links in windows right click within DP and the are appearing now.

 

So I was unaware that all of the folders were not synced, thus missing DP features. My mistake for not noticing. So rule of thumb, be sure to note that all files and folders are synced and that DP has the green check box on each.

 

 Hope this helps someone else.

 

 Thanks

Hi @Bill21, sorry to hear you're having issues with this.

 

Can you please send us a screenshot of the app's exact status as shown in your menu bar/system tray and another one showing the missing options?

 

This will help us assist further. 

 

In the meantime, you can use the website to share your files and folders with others. 

 

In any case, keep me posted, Bill.
