Thanks for the update on this one Russ!

I guess all's well that ends well, right? Hiccups like this are expected to happen from time to time - a hard reboot never hurts in those cases :wink:

Come to think of it, where are the good ol' times when we used to hit them one or two times and they'd get fixed? 

Joking aside, I'm happy to hear you managed to resolve your concern in the end. Should you come up with any Dropbox questions in the future, feel free to let us know. 

Have a great rest of your day!

Have you tried restarting your computer Russ? A hard reboot might be preferable in this case. 

If that doesn't help, please go ahead and re-install our app

Keep us posted on your progress!

Thanks Walter,
I had done a restart earlier, and a relaunch finder with no joy but another shut down/startup has brought it back, thanks, feel a bit dumb now that was the solution 🙂
