Why is the app using over 550MB of RAM when every other syncing app from other cloud storage providers use less than 150MB? What exactly is Dropbox doing on the computer that requires it to use up that much RAM?
Hey @ZetiX, welcome to the Dropbox Community!
Although the desktop app does its best to be as efficient as possible, it may use up more RAM than expected.
You can find more info about possible causes and how to tackle them in this article.
If none of the options mentioned there apply to you or if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to get back to me.
