The venerable "missing smart sync icons" problem.
Menu options for local vs OnlineOnly are active and work. Just can't tell looking at any file/folder in Finder whether it is local or online only.
What am I missing?
OneDrive does this, no problem. Just about at my ropes end with DB.

Thank you for this suggestion. The first thing I did was restart in safemode, launched DropBox and verified the missing icons would appear. They did!! I then went about testing each loaded application for potential conflict. I did that by exiting each, then force-quitting/relaunching finder. Turns out, it was a fellow cloud storage app from Sync.com. I have notified them of the conflict and hereby am letting DB know as well. don't know whose software is the culprit, only know that you two don't play nice together.
In case anyone else finds this thread like me, the OneDrive Finder Extension will also mess things up. You can quit it from the Activity Monitor and then disable it in Settings>Extensions to make the Dropbox icons come back!
Glad to hear that you were able to resolve the issue!
