Please reinstall Dropbox to fix all your syncing icons!

Level 2

I have a Win10 laptop with two hard drives. The dropbox folder lives on the large storage drive.

Over the last week or so I've been getting this message along with complaints from Kaspersky that it couldn't install a Dropbox update. Did the re-install suggested here earlier, but the error message remains.

In addition: dropbox makes me log in, as if I'm not already connected, then tells me that I don't have enough storage space on the drive to sync all files. (it's trying to install to the smaller drive where I store only programs and system files). When I go to preferences and try to move the dropbox to the larger drive, I'm being told this drive already contains a dropbox folder.

Seems I have two instances of dropbox battling for supremacy? Any suggestions what's gone wrong and how to fix it?

Many thanks

Hi Sue, I’ve moved your thread here since users have been reporting issues with Kaspersky, along with a possible solution.
 
Regarding your second issue, try an advanced reinstall of the app and in the advanced settings, chose the second hard drive for the Dropbox folder. 
 
Make sure to choose the ‘parent’ folder, for instance if it’s on E:\data\Dropbox, choose E:\data. 
 
It’ll check it’s associated with the same account and then re-index to ensure that there weren’t any changes.
 
Hope this helps!

For all users in this thread, since it could all be related to Kaspersky, I've merged your threads together here.
 
Try the steps suggested by @ihill, though we have to mention this is not an official answer from Dropbox, so please be cautious with changing any settings, and that you know what you're doing.
 
If this doesn't work, or you're not using Kaspersky and have checked your other anti-virus programs, please write to our support team for them to investigate this matter further.
