When I installed BigSur, dropbox hasn't been functioning normally. I sync a number of folders from my Dropbox filesystem, but when I try to open them I get the following message: "additional permissions are required to access files". Then I get the triangle with an error message. I am able to access the files from the web and once I do that I can usually access the file from my desktop without doing anything.
Thanks Daphne. When I restarted my computer the OS upgraded as did some other programs. Now it seems to work fine - I haven't gotten that error message since doing that. Many thanks.
I'm using my dropbox on multiple devices and very often I have the message "additional permissions are required to access the following file". I've seen that the solution suggested is to restart the computer.
This is not a real solution since when I'm working on a lot of files and I'm in between doing other things I can not restart the computer. And this is happening several times a day.
Sorry, do you have an alternative solution so that I can access my files from my multiple devices (and have them synchronized) without having to restart them?
Thanks for your feedback Walter!
The error messages are exactly the ones posted by dbloomfield1 at the start of the conversation I replied! Let me know should you need them again.
If I look at my desktop icon information it says " All your files are up to date"
Thanks for your support!
