Context menu disappeared in osx

New member | Level 2

I'm running Dropbox on OSX Yosemite. Recently the dropbox sync/checkmarks in the Finder have started disappearing. Restarting has helped sometimes, sometimes not. 

I've read old threads about this from previous versions of both dropbox and OSX and have made sure to try all said there. Not working!

I don't have any conflicting software installed like Onedrive, Google Drive etc. 

Any ideas?

Hi there @guyha, thanks for checking in with us. Let's see what we can find.

As a first step, could you check out this article on what to do if the Dropbox sync icons are missing from your files? Maybe one of them will do the trick. 

Keep me posted!

Hey @alk, thanks for nudging us on this thread. 

To make sure we're on the same page, could you send me a screenshot (without any personal info) or let me know what you see when you hover over your Dropbox icon that's next to your computer's clock?

Thanks!
