Re: help instalaling my dropbox

Hi @INGAL2021, thanks for joining the Community!

It does seem like the app is having issues when trying to install.

If you're not on a Dropbox Basic plan with more than 3 devices connected, could you try an advanced reinstall of the app using the steps in this link?

Keep me updated with any progress!
