I get Couldn't Start Dropbox, usually because of a permissions error. Storing your home folder on a network share can also cause an error.  I really don't understand what that means. 

 

I can open dropbox from the Applications folder. I did the data transfer from my previous computer's backup drive. 

 

Please make specific suggestions. I am not a computer wizard, just a basic user.

 

Thanks,
