Dropbox has been my preferred cloud-based storage system for quite some time. Whether it’s sharing files with other devices or sending large files, it makes the task very easy. Better still, it has been designed to work on any platform like iOS and macOS Sierra.
Just a couple of days back, I found Dropbox missing from Favorites in Finder. It took me some time to bring it back in the sidebar under Favorites. The prime reason why I like to keep Dropbox in Favorites is to be able to access it a bit easily. Here is how you can quickly add this cloud-based app to Favorites in Finder on your Mac.
How to Add Dropbox to Favorites in Finder Sidebar on your Mac
Step #1. First off, open Finder on your Mac.
If the Dropbox location on your Macbook Air is on the startup disk then you will need to change that location to another disk to allow the sync to continue and then free up some space on your startup disk. Once you have done this, the sync should continue normally again and iPhoto should open up ok. Dec 03, 2020 I’m not a video editor, but I’m pretty sure I brutally slayed the M1 MacBook Air I just bought (8 GB RAM and a 512 gigabyte SSD, in case you were wondering) in less than a day of use. It comes down to two reasons, really: The lack of an Apple Silicon-optimized Dropbox app ( it’s coming ), and a solid decade-plus track record of bad habits. Oct 22, 2020 Dropbox for Mac is a convenient cloud storage system that lets you access your files on any computer with an Internet connection. Installing the app is quick and easy, and you can set up a free.
Step #2. Next, you need to click on the drive, in this case, Macintosh HD.
Step #3. Now, you have to click on Users.
Step #4. Click on your Username.
Step #5. Finally, you need to locate the Dropbox folder and drag it to the sidebar under Favorites.
If you wish to remove DropBox from finder sidebar, right click on DropBox and click on “Remove from Sidebar.”

The Apple Support Communities are an international user to user technical support forum. As a man from Mexico, Spanish is my native tongue. I do not speak English very well, however, I do write in English with the aid of the Mac OS X spelling and grammar checks. I also live in a culture perhaps very very different from your own. When offering advice in the ASC, my comments are not meant to be anything more than helpful and certainly not to be taken as insults.
