Inappropriate attempt at privilege escalation

Inappropriate attempt at privilege escalation

Any chance we could get an update on the behaviour described in this comment ?  It's really inappropriate, and the response is wholly inadequate.

Hey @wilo108; thanks for posting on our Community!

 

Can you please share some additional information about the issue you're facing?

 

While we're at it, could you clarify what update you'd like to see in regards to the comment you linked to?

 

For example, are you also referring to syncing files with custom permissions via our desktop app on a Linux environment or did you have something else in mind? 

 

Any additional information will be much appreciated!

@Walter-- thanks for your response.  I'm referring to the inappropriate attempt at privilege escalation, as referenced in my title (typo just fixed, sorry!).  Dropbox should not be asking for root so as to chmod my files.

Oh, I see now; thanks for clearing this up for me @wilo108.

I appreciate your feedback on this and I'll make a note of it internally as well. 

Let me know if you have anything else to add or ask.
