WARNING!!! I downloaded Dropbox 183.4.7058 earlier today and all H broke loose with constant fileproviderctl crashs. Posted on their Community forums, and fairly shortly, a Dropbox rep, Jay, answered with a link to revert to Dropbox 182.4.6427. That solved the crashes. Either do not update or find the 1824.6427 version. I tried to attach the .dmg file, but this forum does not allow. Try this link: https://www.dropbox.com/install

v181.4.5678 is out. The app stalled after its self-update. It required Quit and reopening before it worked. That knocked off a point. I'm also sick of the Eternal-Red-1 nonsense, which equates to a constant NAG to upgrade, which I won't. Today I'm actually considering dumping Dropbox. Something with end-to-end encryption would be nice.

A star has died. Dropbox repeatedly LIES TO ME that my space is almost full. NO IT'S NOT. Their marketing morons are foisting their Plus plans. Pyzz Off! - - Never doubt that modern Marketing focuses upon scouring and abusing the customer. Marketing victim beware. Idiots. Etc. Remind you of politics much?

hello, any chance of a latest dropbox version? the updater is looping around again, and I already have this version 164.4.7914 installed . Pretty sure it is looping because of the periodic drops in the network connectivity here, but unfortunately nothing much I can do about that.. Thanks in advance

Total ram hog and slow and sync quite hit and miss. Compared to Google drive syncing the same content it takes up almost 1 gig of ram compared to Google Drive 150 mg of ram this just for a syncing app also it has become very expensive one you go past the basic version. Have finally given up on it. and deleted it off my computer and reclaimed some sanity. It used to be lean and quick and responsive to syncing files alas no more.

Dropbox is good for what I use it for, but I wish they abandon the automatic dropbox updater on Mac. By all means suggest people to download the latests update, but since May 2022, the updater on my and my colleagues' Macs seems to loop and loop without ever reaching the mere 270Mb download size. This can go on for days, clogging up bandwidth. Since May 2022 I have therefore been using this site to download the upgrade dmg file directly, and install it myself, and this seems a good workaround the looping issue.

Hello, would you be able to place the latest version of dropbox on this site please? I am having terrible problems with the dropboxmacupdater looping endlessly. I have used the direct downloads form this site since May 2022, and that seems to work fine. But I now need the latest version (v161.4.4923), but cannot find it anywhere. Would be great if you can post it here. Thanks, Joost

Bloated beyond belief. Over 260mb with loads of extra features nobody asked for. I use Maestral now, which just sticks to Dropbox syncing, in an unobtrusive way - just like Dropbox used to do when it was good.

DropBox is ok and works well but DropBox Paper is a complete fail and let down. It's confusing, limited, makes it hard to collaborate. So I'd give 4 stars to DropBox and 1 to Paper.

Shockiing app that uses 1GB RAM after just 10 minutes - even though all files are synced. Unsure what the app is doing but it is a memory hog on M1 Mac Mini (16GB unified memory). I kill all dropbox processes/tasks with Activity Manager and restart. Bam, within a minuite back up to 500 - 600MB RAM and less than 10 minutes later back up to 1GB. I was a long-time user but can't possibly recommend this app.
