Disk Space and Unsyncing

Hi all,

I am trying to un-sync my photos to save space.  I understand all of the help tool, but the first step is to click the Dropbox Icon in the system tray or menu bar, but I don't have this icon.  How can I get passed this first step another way?

Running off MacOS 10.14

Re: Disk Space and Unsyncing

Hi Brent!
It sounds like the desktop app isn’t running. Could you please locate the desktop app from the list of programs on your computer and run it? If you don’t find it, could you please try to reinstall the desktop app (61.4.95)?
Let me know how it goes! upside-down face
