Ability to copy Dropbox Link directly in finder

Usually, when a file is in my Dropbox folder, I can right click and copy the share link from the finder window.

 

In the past week or two, that option has disappeared. Any idea where it went?

Is the Dropbox client running? Those options (and your overlay icons) are only available while Dropbox is running.

I posted a follow up question but was able to figure out the answer so nevermind. Couldn't figure out how to delete my post so hence this message.

 

My apologies.

When you installed Dropbox, were you prompted for administrative credentials, and if so, did you supply them? Can you see the sync status overlays on your Dropbox files?

If not, I would probably uninstall and reinstall the latest stable version, being sure to supply your credentials when prompted.
