Dropbox indicates it is totally synced, yet using 583 MB of RAM+ CPU

New member | Level 2

As I sit here, Dropbox indicates it is totally synced.  It is using 583 MB of RAM.  It is jamming up my computer so other programs don't work properly.  How do I fix this?  Your article that you keep pointing to doesn't fix it.

Re: RAM and CPU usage


Hi @drummin2life. Sorry to hear about this. 

I am here to help with this. 

Please add the article you are referring to, so I can know the steps you've tried already. The version of your Operating system and the version of Dropbox you have installed on this device.

Looking forward to your next comment to help you more. 

Thank you!
