RED SQUARE IN MY DROPBOX ICON

RED SQUARE IN MY DROPBOX ICON

Eduardo P.12
New member | Level 2

I have just changed my hard disk and since, it appears a red square with a number 1 inside in my dropbox icon, I have no problem with my files and syncronization, but, I´m concerned about that red square.

 

Does anyone knows why it is happening?

Thanks!

Eduardo

Hi @Eduardo P.12; how are you today?

 

It sounds like you're referring to a notification that's visible on the desktop app within your system tray/menu bar.

 

If that's the case indeed, have you been through all of your recent notifications and/or marked them as read?

 

This should get rid of the red square icon you mentioned, but let me know if it doesn't providing me a screenshot so I can have a further look into this for you.

 

Thanks a bunch, Eduardo.

Hi Walter!
 
You’re right!
 
I looked at my notifications, I read all of them, after that the red square desapeared.
 
Best regards,
