Smart sync icons missing

Smart sync icons missing

clarestirling
Helpful | Level 5

Hi there - I'm trying to set up Dropbox on my mac. My colleague can get smart sync icons to appear - mine do not appear. I deleted dropbox and started to install it again. It says smart sync is working but no icons appear so I don't know if something is online or local.

 

Can you please help?

 

thanks

Hey clarestirling, thanks for the additional context!
 
I followed up with you via email on this. I also removed your screenshots for your own protection as they contained folder names, so we can continue troubleshooting from there.
 
 Thanks for your cooperation!

Hi there - this is what I see - no cloud or tick icons like my colleagues screen.

Is the Dropbox icon showing in your menu bar? If not, Dropbox isn't running, so the icons will not appear.

Could you bring up the context menu for the folder you are trying to smart sync? 
 
If you do not have smart sync settings when bringing up the context menu, please provide me with one more screenshot in order to troubleshoot further for you. 
 
Thanks for your cooperation!

Hi there - yes sure - see attached - the option is in the menu - but no icons on any of the files in the folder.
