Users on Mac OS Mojave are experiencing an issue with Dropbox, their computers have become extremely slow. It works fine when Dropbox is not running.
When Dropbox app is relaunched, it takes about 30 minutes then it tries to sync files and that never stops.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Does anyone know how we fix this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
THANK YOU, firstlooks!
Your instructions finally worked, whereas everything else had failed. More detailed instructions for deleting the hidden folder can be found here:
same problem here: since on macOS Mojave 10.4 the Dropbox app is stuck on "connecting" and won't sync my 1Password folder with other Apple devices (they perfectly sync between them, only the iMac won't). This is a BIG problem as you can imagine.
I installed Mojave on my iMac a few weeks back and everything worked perfectly excpet Dropbox which completely killed my machine. As werun our entire business through Dropbox, I had to go through an extremely painful 3 day process to revert the machine to High Sierra which is now running perfectly. Too scared to try Mojave again. Couldn't find anything online about similar issues at the time, but what you're descibing is exactly what happend to me. I'm afraid I don't have a solution otehr tjan to uninstall and revert back - itself a very complicated process.
I am afraid I will be forced to "drop" Dropbox as there is no way to make it working on my iMac (Mojave) and I need to sync my files, especially the 1Password ones
I have the same problem: Can you estimate whether you will find a solution, and how soon, or do we have to switch back to Sierra? Hopefully you can do something about this, because otherwise Mojave is working very well!
Under Mojave, dropbox renders my computer unusable after about 10 minutes. It looks like the problem is I/O requests—either too many of them building up or somehow each one of them taking too long, but if I leave dropbox on, my laptop becomes completely unusable. If I turn off Dropbox, the computer recovers quite quickly. I have a lot of files on Dropbox, and use selective sync to turn them off. I here's hoping somewhat at Dropbox is paying attention to this.
