Multiple dropbox instances at startup.

Multiple dropbox instances at startup.

New member | Level 2

Hi everyone,

I am having a problem with my dropbpx local installation on windows 10 desktop.

When I turn on my pc, I see that 30 dropbox instances are started and mess everything around (98%  ram immediately).

Has anyone faced this problem again?

I faced the same problem couple of months ago, but a fresh install did the job.

More over an error popped about permissions, but I didn't take a screenshow to show.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi @ppel123, thanks for messaging today!

 

If you’re not on a Basic plan with more than 3 devices connected, could you try an advanced reinstall of the app using the steps in this link?


Additionally, if you’re able to get a screenshot of the error message you received, this would be very helpful!
