I don't want to put the dropbox folder in my home drive. I want to put it where i want to put it.
Doesn't seem like too much to ask.
What is the problem?
Thanks for the screenshot, @ScottSandifer.
It looks like you're trying to move the Dropbox folder to a folder that's syncing with iCloud.
Could you try moving it to a path that's not connected to iCloud and let me know if you get the same error message?
If you're getting the same error message in those paths, it sounds like iCloud still has access to those folders.
You can either change the settings so that iCloud isn't backing them up or choose a different location for the Dropbox folder.
Let me know how it goes, thanks!
Hey @ScottSandifer, just jumping in here!
If you're still getting that error then it seems iCloud is still looking at the Documents folder. Can you just clarify for me if iCloud drive is turned off from your System Preferences?
In System Preferences, this will be under "Apple ID" if you're device is running Catalina or "iCloud Drive" with Mojave.
Keep us posted!
I am having the same problem. Responding to the last question, yes, I turned off iCloud Drive and tried again to move it to a folder within my Documents folder. I got the same error message below.
For me, this happened shortly after install when I tried to move the dropbox folder to a suitable location. I am using dropbox for business, and I'd like to put it in the folder that I use for all my documents related to that job. Make sense? I followed this article for how to move the folder. Since prior to install, iCloud drive has NOT been backing up Desktop and Documents folders.
I have Mojave. Thanks
