There's a lot of posts about possible issues with OS X High Sierra and Smart Sync.
We use dropbox a lot and have only recently enabled Smart Sync for all users in the team. Can someone from Dropbox confirm what the status of Smart Sync with 10.13 is, we can't upgrade our system software unless Dropbox will work...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Apple recommended something I should have thought of... Safe mode.
I first disabled Gatekeeper using the following command in terminal (unclear if this would be required):
sudo spctl --master-disable
I then rebooted the Mac into safe mode and opened the Security panel in System Preferences and clicked the Allow button.
The Blocked message cleared from the Security Panel and Smart Sync was active and operating normally when I rebooted.
Issue seems resolved.
Smart sync and Mac OSX 10.13.1
Smart Sync cannot be enabled.
trashed the app,
removed the Dropbox folder (trash)
emptied the trash
Restarted the Mac
(the notification with the allow button is still in Security & preferences)
entered the user's correct email and password [email address removed by Jane for security reasons]
entered the pin sent to his phone
was prompted to open security & preferences (already open and unlocked)
Clicked allow and the message did not go away.
I am stuck
Dropbox is replicating but the message will not go away

We installed a fresh copy of High Sierra on this machine (Erased drives and installed the OS)
We then updated the machine via the App store updates
We then installed Dropbox.
Please see the attached images for the version of OS installed.
We have had Dropbox installed on every other computer in the office and had no issue.
We had rebuilt three other machines in the office since the High Sierra release and had no issue.
Now we have an issue.
I HAVE DISABELD GATEKEEPER ON MACOSX TO ALLOW INSTALL FROM ANYWHERE AND IT STILL WILL NOT ALLOW THE DROPBOX APP TO ENABLE SMART SYNC. SEE SCREENSHOT
IS THIS PART OF THE ISSUE?
(Sorry for the shouty all caps above, this is all pasted in from my trouble ticket with dropbox)
