Dropbox Mac Finder Extension in Monterey 12.4 - incompatible with Google Drive, OneDrive, and others

Dropbox Mac Finder Extension in Monterey 12.4 - incompatible with Google Drive, OneDrive, and others

HAK3
Explorer | Level 4

I'm using both Dropbox and Google Drive for different folders on my Mac.  If the finder extension for Google Drive is active, then then Dropbox finder extension fails and the cloud status icons on the Dropbox folders disappear.  Likewise if the finder extension for New File Menu (a nice 3rd party Mac utility) is active then again the Dropbox finder extension fails to display cloud status.  Ditto for Microsoft OneDrive.

 

I've tried to report this to Dropbox, but the response I get back is that I have to uninstall Goggle Drive and other finder extensions, which is not an option.  Since Google Drive and OneDrive and New File Menu can all get along just fine, there is no inherent reason that Dropbox cannot as well if its extension were written properly.   Has anyone found a way to either get Dropbox to pay attention to bug reports or to get around this particular one?

Sadly I dont think so 😞 

 

I have a bug report with them for an issue with shared folders that they've acknowledged nearly a year ago and said 'they have no plans to fix'. Dropbox support is, sadly, very hit/miss and at best poor 😞
