Re: Adding Dropbox to my Finder Sidebar of my Mac

A quick reinstall will usually fix most issues.

If the Dropbox folder isn't visible in the Finder sidebar, it can be returned just by dragging it there.

Re: Adding Dropbox to my Finder Sidebar of my Mac

There is a question in this? winking face If you want to have a DB folder at your sidebar, then search for the DB folder, then just drag the folder into your sidebar. When dragging into the sidebar you will see a line coming up to show you where the folder will be between inserted. If you drag it over a folder then it will go into that folder.

Thank you

Thank you Robert for your help. 

As I told before, I have tried everything : Reinstall , drag and youtube tutorials. 

The finder sidebar does not accept de dropbox icon. I can drag the icon but no line appears.

I don't know how to fixed it.

I am having the same problem. Nothing works to get that icon in the finder sidebar. I don't know if this is a dropbox issue or an apple issue.  Help!  (Thanks)

I found the solution thanks to Robert S (on another message).  I was trying to move it from the wrong source. Try this:

The Dropbox folder is a real literal folder on your computer. On a Mac, the default location is Macintosh HD > Users > "your user account" > Dropbox and it's easily added to the Finder sidebar as previously described.

Thanks Kathy and Robert!  That worked perfectly!  ie:

Thanks to all for helping provide a solution to this problem. I just upgraded to El Capitan and I'm having to fix everything to the way I had it before. That doesn't really seem like an upgrade to me.  I'm so thankful for finding this solution.
