ManagedClient process consumes so much memory it causes a kernel panic

Explorer | Level 3

Hello everyone,,

Starting about a month ago, the macOS Dropbox app has started consuming an abnormal amount of memory by way of the ManagedClient process. It'll climb to over 10GB of memory (not disk space) and eventually cause the machine to restart itself.

Has anyone else faced this issue? I've verified permissions, uninstalled and reinstalled, enabled and disabled Smart Sync... nothing helps..

Hi @Devabhai. Sorry to hear that. 

What is the version of your OS and of the Dropbox desktop app installed there? 

Please take a look at this Help center article explaining what can cause high CPU usage

Let me know if this was helpful.
