I just noticed that my Dropbox isn't running since April 8th! I don't know why it is no longer running. I do not know how to fix this. I use a Mac OS X 10.7. I reinstalled Growl (newest version). I no longer see the Dropbox icon on my tool bar (upper bar). Please help!!!
Same here, since about May 20: I'm running 10.7.5 on an iMac, and the dropbox icon has disappeared, and when I click on the dropbox widget in my finder window, it says "Dropbox isn't running". Dropbox works fine on my other Macs, running 10.9.4. Did they stop supporting it for 10.7? I hope not! I need that old machine...
It's not running on either of my computers.
A few people have said one needs to update the OS. The new Mac OS trashes iPhoto. I don't want to lose that program, nor do I care to deal with the extra hassles entailed in keeping it in the new OS environment because I don't have time for that with the current workload. I don't want to update that OS just this moment. Is there any way to get recover DB functionality without having to shaft ourself with the new operating system?
I have problems running Dropbox on my Macbook, which is on Lion 10.7.4. In the finder menu I can see the Dropbox Icon in the sidebar, but when I click the icon it the top menu bar of finder it says "Dropbox isn't running" and I can see that files saved to Dropbox from other computers (I have checked all the accounts/devices are linked correctly) have not updated there.
Is there a simple fix for this? I'd hate to stop using Dropbox but at present it's lost most of its functionality for me.
