New Dropbox update has really slowed things down for older PC's Currently use DB on over 30 computers running Windows 8 & 10. Worked fine last month, but now the new update has made things terribly slow.

Re: New Dropbox update

Hi there @Brendon2020, sorry to hear that. Could you please provide me with a few more details, such as the version of the desktop app that you’re using on your computer by hovering over your Dropbox icon on your system tray? A screenshot (without any personal info) or any additional info of the behavior you’re seeing would be very helpful. Thanks in advance!
