Dropbox is a great tool for genealogists and most everyone else. It has been mentioned in this newsletter dozens of times. (See https://goo.gl/nx4GnP for a list of my past articles about Dropbox.) However, if you are a Macintosh user and you just upgraded to the new macOS Sierra version of the operating system, “strange things” may happen. Luckily, there is a fix.
If you’re experiencing any issues after the update, like Apple error messages or dialogue boxes when files are moved into Dropbox, confusing sync icons on or in the Dropbox folder, or issues with iCloud sync, the cause is likely iCloud not playing nice with your Dropbox folder.
