I am trying to delete the Dropbox app from my Mac, but it gives me an error message saying 'The item “Dropbox” can’t be moved to the Trash because some of its plugins are in use', even after closing all other open applications. What could these plugins be and how can I stop them from being in use?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am using Yosemite. I first quit Dropbox from the Menubar but could not Trash Dropbox from my Applications folder as certain plug ins were functioning. So, I opened Activity monitor and found that Dropbox Finder Integration was still working.I could not force quit it from Activity Monitor. So I opened Dropbox again and clicked on the Dropbox Icon on the menubar and opened Preferences to disable Dropbox Finder integration and two other plug ins. After that I could trash Dropbox from Applications seamlessly.
