Moving Dropbox folder

Moving Dropbox folder

AA2010
New member | Level 2

Hello - I have successfully used the script in this article https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/desktop/move-dropbox-folder  to change the permissions so that I can move my Dropbox folder into the "users" folder. It doesn't seem to work now - when I run it in Terminal it says "no such file or directory" after I paste in the first line. Does anyone know if this script is still current? I am operating Big Sur on a Mac. Thanks!

Hey @AA2010, welcome aboard our Community!

Can you please clarify which steps you're following when you get to this error message?

And if you go to the Sync tab in the Dropbox application preferences, do you see the location of the Dropbox folder to be in the "users" folder?

Let me know what you find!
