Dropbox won't connect/sync

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello. I recently installed the new Sierra for Mac and my dropbox won't connect/syc up at all. It will open but it constantly shows that it's connecting. It's doesn't show any error code, or any other warnings. When I checked the settings in dropbox it says it's not linked to an account. But I didn't change the laptop or anything. What do I do?

Check the Proxy setting in Dropbox Preferences and make sure it's set to No proxy. That's the usual cause for a Dropbox client that can't connect.
