Using a Mac laptop and recently installed Dropbox business, and now have both my personal Dropbox and work dropbox running in parallel. The laptop has limited storage space, so I'm not syncing all the files on the work dropbox, but just the folders I need to use regularly.
I can't seem to open files from these folders in external apps, however. If I attempt to open a file from Word or Illustrator, or attach a file in a browser email client the program just hangs and I get an endless swirling rainbow. Eventually I have to force stop the program.
If however I go in to Dropbox first and try to open the file from the folder files open just fine. What's going on?
Solved! Go to Solution.
All files on my Dropbox for business are affected. I can open the files from my personal dropbox just fine. My browser is set to open files from my dropbox business account by default since the last file I successfully uploaded came from there, any time I now try to upload anything to my browser the browser crashes, so can't share any screen dumps unfortunately.
The sync status? There's a green circle with a checkmark that says "uppdaterad" (updated in Swedish).
