I have enabled Windows Security Protected folder access on all my personal Windows folders, e.g. Music, Favorites. Now Windows Security detects Dropbox trying to access those folders and blocks that, giving a notification about it.
Why is Dropbox engaging in this suspicious behaviour?
Of course I want Dropbox to stop doing this. Is this something I can configere?
Hello Daphne, that is a prompt pick up of my call!
I do not know what symlinks are. I am not an experienced Dropbox user. Installed it for the first time. Changed its folder location and that's it.
However, I have turned on in Windows Security a feature that is not default which does some extra protection. Also note that I am on the slow preview ring, so this might be something new. Nevertheless it surprises me that Dropbox tries to access those folders, as I can't think of any reason why it should. As you can see in the list, it tries it rather frequently.
Refer the attached photos.
Thanks for your attention.
