In all the WWDC excitement, forgot to check whether Dropbox works before jumping to macOS 11. It doesn’t. I use Dropbox everywhere, so probably need to take a step back on this upgrade if they can’t address it soon.

@manton Ugh yeah that happened to me using SyncThing when I upgraded to Catalina, still haven't figured out how to resolve it.

@manton Oh, no, thanks for the heads up. Something that would have bitten me later today if I didn't read this

@aaronpk I just started using Syncthing on Catalina with no issues, plus now added a FreeBSD machine into the mix. I use LAN or port-forwarded WAN SFTP access to either laptop back home with Documents to access from iOS.

@manton if dropbox uses the now considered bad kernel stuff (it was bad anyway) it maybe a while I guess - I moved my dropbox folders to iCloud Drive on my Mac a while back and I have found its fine, although shared folders is finickity but I rarely need them. Also I don’t do iCloud sync of documents and desktop.

@incanus I think part of my mistake was doing an in-place upgrade instead of my normal wipe everything and install from scratch. Also it's a 2017 12" Macbook and it's really struggling to keep up these days.

@aaronpk Ah, could be. I’m running 2013 Pro and Air, but each with 8GB of RAM, which I think makes a big difference in all regards (and longetivity). But they seem to be the lowest bar for Big Sur so I’ll have to make some decisions soon...

@incanus Yeah my 12" is an i7 with 16gb RAM so I would have thought it would be okay. It's been bad enough lately that I should probably just reinstall Catalina from scratch.

@aaronpk Yeah something sounds off there, that thing should still scream.

@manton I moved from Dropbox entirely to icloud about 4 months ago. After the initial pain of the migration and upload time, it's been really great
