Hi Dede,

I've been using DropBox for a bunch of years and haven't encountered a permissions issue before, so I'm interested to see how you're able to resolve this.

At first I thought it would be a simple fix by running Fix Permissions in the Disk Utility, but after a quick google search, I found this article:


Basically, open your Dropbox preferences, then go to the Account tab, and then hold the option key down — the button labeled "Unlink this Dropbox..." will change to "Fix Permissions" — with the option key still held down, select the "Fix Permissions" button.

Nice feature I didn't know existed. Hopefully, this will fix your issue!

> hello folks…any Dropbox pros out there? All of a sudden an entire folder won’t let me view it and says I don’t have permission. Yet when I Get Info on the folder it says that I do have permission to read & write.  Have tried quitting and noggin in again. Going to Dropbox itself instead of from my computer. Nothing working. Other can view the folder, just not me and I didn’t change anything on my end
