Dropbox approaced me a couple months ago to help with a beta test.  It had several issues that i reported to them and then went back to the current Dropbox.  Now, in Lightroom, it will not see any new folders or photos stored on Dropbox.  It will see any of the old folders and photos on there.  AND, of course, Dropbox tech chat couldn't help and said to ask you guys.  Any thoughts on this?  I can work around by put the photos on my computer harddrive and then Lightroom see them just fine.

And in the folders panel, have you corrected any missing folder issues? Update Folder location?

Make sure the photos and folders are not marked online only (that is, they should be available offline).  Dropbox still hasn't ensured that only-only files will work with apps; see here for details:

This started with Apple not working closely enough with Dropbox and OneDrive prior to changes made in Mac OS 12.3:

That seems to be the issue.  Thanks for those articles.  I can work around this for now, hopefully they will fix it soon.

You stated, "That seems to be the issue."

What specifically do you expect to be fixed?
