No Permission to sync

No Permission to sync

Hello. I moved my dropbox folder to an external drive to save space. Mistake. When I restarted the computer the drive wasn't connected and Dropbox couldn't find it. Now it won't do ANYTHING. I've moved the dropbox folder back to my computer (but not sure which location to put it in). I've deleted the desktop app and redownloaded. Same 'no permission to sync screen' every time. I can't see an answer to this particular question in existing discussions - could anyone help please? Nathan

Hey @nathanevans; welcome to our Community and happy Monday!

Could you please perform a clean, advanced re-install and let me know if you're still getting an error?

Thanks!
