Okay, lets back up a bit, you said  . I've moved my home directory folder location.

Look at these instructions on the terminal midway thru article.  Pay attention to the end of #3

i've deleted already dropbox folder. I want to launch it from the very begining and set up dropbox folder. I want to delete everything linked to dropbox and start it over. But i think i've tried this method by deleting ".dropbox" folder and "DropboxHelperTools.old". Maybe there are another folders of dropbox...

have you made sure other Dropbox components are not running.  If you feel like it, try launching Activity Monitor found in your Application folder and see if Dropbox is running.  If so, kill all instances and start over.

Try reinstalling Dropbox client.

I've reinstalled Dropbox application, is it client? On the link on video you can see what ".DS_Store" file is automatically recreates in ".dropbox" folder. Is it correct? 

I've checked activity monitor there was no dropbox logs, then deleted files form ".dropbox "and "DropboxHelperTools.old", than instaled dropbox and still the same.
