I hit on a formula for moving my Dropbox folder that stops the cranky November message. It's messy and ugly, but...
I've also got to be honest and say I dont know enough about Linux to be able to comment on specifics etc. All I can do is keep moving everything together to try and help everybody as best as possible to try and a) find a new solution that works for them or b) change their file systems.

I use encrypted ext4 on my notebook, so I need to chose a different provider, no problem so far, there are enough
Just registered for this post!
I'm a Slackware Linux user since... forever, and also a DropBox user, never had issues.
I use XFS filesystems and also received the popup message.
I'm already registering with other providers and making the proper Linux client sync and replication tests, for sure will abandon this service.
I use Dropbox primarily on ZFS. I like the local data integrity and snapshot features of ZFS. It's a huge feature for me to have my files available on dropbox as well as locally on ZFS. If I can no longer use dropbox in this way, I will probably cancel my account and switch to something else because I'm paying for and using dropbox over the others primarily because I can use it with whatever filesystem I want on Linux as well as on iOS.
At the very least, they should come out and explain, even if technical, why something that has worked for years suddenly shouldn't work any more. I've been syncing to a ReFS drive on Windows (including some folders pulled in via junction links but stored on different volumes) and it has worked for years, so why should it suddenly stop without a clear explanation?! I've been a paying customer for some time, but I'm not going to turn my storage system upside-down without at least an explanation from them!! So yeah, considering cancelling my account before the next renewal here as well, this is ridiculous!
"In Linux, the ext2, ext3, ext4, JFS, Squashfs, Yaffs2, ReiserFS, Reiser4, XFS, Btrfs, OrangeFS, Lustre, OCFS2 1.6 and F2FS filesystems support extended attributes"
You can add zfs to that list too.
