I'm setting up a new Mac Book and trying to connect MD with the dropbox sync - MD is stuck on this step (attached) - what should I try next. The online help says not to stop or force quit but it's been stuck here for over an hour. I'm using Big Sur and the latest version of MD downloaded from InfiniteKind web site.

Thanks.

    What version of MD?
    Dropbox folders or connection?

    Install Dropbox client, get that logged in and working. Then try again selecting Dropbox Folders. If that doesn't work, post Help/Show Console
