Finder contextual menu for Dropbox doubled up

Finder contextual menu for Dropbox doubled up

Mawthra
Helpful | Level 6

This is a brand new fresh install of Catalina (drive wiped, OS installed) and then installing Dropbox... noticed I'm getting the Dropbox contextual items in the Finder doubled up when right clicking on files already in my Dropbox (right clicking on files outside Dropbox are fine)... how can I resolve this?

 

I'm really hoping the answer isn't "unlink, reinstall Dropbox", because I have over 7TB on Dropbox and every time I relink it takes hours to verify the local files

Hi @Eden S., thanks for messaging today!

 

 

I'm sorry to hear about this. Could you try rebooting the machine to see if this helps clear the duplicated context menus?

 

Keep me posted!

That did it, thanks! It's a machine I really only tap into remotely, so restarting it isn't something I tend to do unless it's an OS update.
