I can'gt get Smart Sync working on a new OSX Catalina 10.15 install (19A603).
When I go to Preferences and click "Enable" nothing happens. See photo.
Anyone know how to fix this?
Hey there @mdcosby, welcome to the Dropbox Community!
From what I can see from the screenshot, you have the beta version of the desktop app.
For this reason, could you try installing the latest stable version (83.4.152), instead? To do this, you'll need to:
Once you install the stable build, it might take some time to re-index the files and sync any pending changes but your app's functionality should return to normal.
Let me know if this helps!
I have installed the latest non-beta version per your inscructions and am having the same issue. Screenshots below. When I try to click "Enable" nothing happens...
RIght clicking and selecting any of the Smart Sync options also does nothing (files remain on my mac hard drive....)
Any other thoughts?
Thanks for getting back to me on this, @mdcosby.

Hi @rucola, thanks for nudging us on this and sorry to hear that you're also experiencing the same behavior.
I can see that you're running the current stable version of the desktop app, so at this point, I'd recommend continuing via email so as to have a more in depth look.
I located your ongoing support request and can see that it's with a specialized member of the team. I've passed your comments along and they'll get back to you as soon as they have more info on the matter.
Thanks in avance for your patience!
Hey @sjv, thanks for nudging us here and sorry to hear that you're also having trouble with enabling Smart Sync on your computer.
Could you please confirm if you've tried temporarily disabling/closing any third party app, like a security software or antivirus, that could be hindering the desktop app's performance? Maybe that will do the trick.
Let me know how it goes!
Hey @sjv, thanks for keeping me in the loop and sorry for the late reply.
