Bug: Fixed & Removable Drive Icons Have Red X Overlay

Helpful | Level 5

When Dropbox is running it places a Red X overlay on EVERY drive icon. Including optical and removable drives. If I exit DB all icons are restored to normal.

Never happened in previous versions. Current version Im using is: 77.3.125

Im not syncing drives and have only ever synced the default DB folder.

Hey peeps!
 
So from what I can see initially, @Disk4mat and @AKai-945 you’re both running a beta version of the desktop app, denoted by xxx.3.xxx. Would you mind downgrading to the latest stable version and let me know if you still see the same issue?
 
You can do this by going to your account settings page here, and towards the bottom of the web page you need to toggle off the option for “Early releases”. Once you’ve done so, please download and install the latest stable version of the app, which can be done from here.
 
@AKolev, can you check for me the current version of the desktop app you have installed on your devices? If it appears they’re also beta versions, please also follow the above steps and get back to me with your update on the situation.
 
Let me know what you find peeps, if you have any questions then let me know - Thanks!

Yep that fixed it for me. I disabled early releases.... Exited DB (right click tray icon, Profile menu, Exit)... Installed from supplied link and drive icons are just fine. Huge thanks!
