Time Left in Sync has been removed from the desktop app

Helpful | Level 6

The dropbox menu bar app has stopped showing the time left in the current sync in the bottom of the window. It shows a seemingly irrelevant progress bar but even hovering over that does not tell me the time left to sync, which I have depended on to let clients know when files will be there. Hovering over only gives me the option to pause syncing. Was this feature removed or is this a bug in the latest update?

I'm on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

Hi there, if you hover over the Dropbox menu bar icon, instead of the progress bar, does it show the time remaining for the files to sync fully?
 
Keep me posted!

Is this the only file you’re trying to sync currently, or is there more than one recently changed file?

It's happening no matter how many files i add, but the screenshots I took were when trying to sync one file (so no need to prioritize). I just want it to show me how much time is left in the sync and it stopped doing that with whatever update added the blue progress bar.

Time Left not Showing

Helpful | Level 5

Hello,

 

My dropbox files are syncing fine, but time left is not showing anymore. This makes it very annoying to gage how much time I will have to tell a client to wait for their files.

Hi @eddiejag, I’ve merged your query into this thread since another user had the same question.
 
Would be possible we can reach out to you, and you @mcfinney, in order to investigate this further? Thanks!
