Re: finder integration disappearing

Hi @FesT, thanks for messaging today!

Could you try installing the Dropbox desktop application without uninstalling first to see if this repairs the Finder integration?

Keep me updated with any progress!

Sure, but that is only a temporary solution for me. After a  sleep/wakeup the issue is there again

I am still experiencing the same issue. There are things that have helped get it back, but only temporarily, and then it eventually disappears. I realize that if files are syncing it might not work, but I have nothing syncing and it is not showing in the Finder. So far the only thing that helps is going into System Preferences / Extensions / and toggling on and off of the Dropbox checkbox. If I do that, they reappear, but not permanently. Screen Shot 2021-02-12 at 12.09.00 PM.png

I have the same problem. Running the latest Mac OS and latest Dropbox app. Right clicking on files in Dropbox folder in Finder does not show the link to share. I had to download the app and use that rather than directly (and more conveniently) from the Finder.

This is affecting me too and it's incredibly frustrating. Why is there not a universal solution yet?

This is incredibly frustrating. Happening across all computers, as we all run dropbox as our server solution.

Hi @Jay,

I downloaded and installed the Dropbox desktop application without uninstalling first. But it doesn't changed anything. The finder integration didn't appear after the installation. The only thing that works at the moment is rebooting the mac, then the integration is there for some time until it disappears again.

Do you have any other Idea how to fix that?

FWIW, I have the same problem as the others in this thread...DropBox integration in Finder suddenly unavailable in recent days
