Having a perfectly working Dropbox installation on a German Windows 10, 64-bit, being located on a secondary SSD M2 "E:\Dropbox".
Then I decided to activate BitLocker on that drive.
Some days later, I again deactivated BitLocker on that drive again.
Big mistake, the Dropbox application is now crashing every half of an hour ("Dropbox has ended unecpexted" or something similar).
Watching the Task Manager, it rans well above 3.4 GB memory usage before crashing.
My Dropbox is about 0,9 TB in size and about 860.000 files and about 135.000 folders.
I've tried everything I could get my hands on after googling and searching the forums here, including the advanced install/uninstall tips, cleared the Registry, rebooted.
How can I get my Dropbox working again correctly?
Hey @Uwe K.2,
Thanks for reaching out to us about this!
As a first step, could you please let me know if you're able to temporarily close or disable BitLocker by any chance?
If not, can you add Dropbox to an ignore list so that the desktop app can launch and sync?
Let me know of any updates!
Thanks for getting back to me, @Uwe K.2.
Could you also ensure that you're on the stable version of the desktop app by hovering over the Dropbox icon on your system tray?
If you're on the beta build (which you can recognize from xx.3.xx, instead of xx.4.xx), it means that you've opted in to Early Releases in your online account settings.
Let me know if this helps!
Hmm. Could it be that you have a lot of files syncing in your desktop app?
To tackle this, you can use selective sync to choose only certain folders to sync.
Let me know what you find!
Do you even read what I post here?
I do not get a "bad performance", I have a week of unsynced local changes in my Dropbox because this thing is constantly crashing without syncing a single file.
Is there a paid support option?
I prefer to pay money instead ob being constantly keept occupied without any progress.
