    Drive Icons in File Explorer have red x's?


    Greetings guys and girls.

    My drive icons suddenly look like this? Anyone else seen this? How do I fix this? (Running 1903)

    Rebuilding The Icon Cache might fix that issue.

    Are you syncing information with Onedrive or any other solution?

    If using, is that solution logged into and functioning properly.

    I see the little green check mark on dropbox in your screen shot.

    I use both OneDrive as well as Dropbox, but both are fully synced. Not sure why all my drives would show up with the icon?

    Exiting Dropbox makes the drive icons disappear, not sure what setting it is, but definitely caused some confusion for me.

    Exiting and then restarting dropbox did fix the issue.

    Thanks. Much appreciated

    Nope, spoke to soon. X's are back again after restarting Dropbox.

    Also happening on my work PC.

    I think someting is screwy with Dropbox

    I am having the exact same problem. I think it's Windows related, not Dropbox related, even though i have it installed too.

    Definitely caused by Dropbox. If you exit it they’ll disappear. If you relaunch they come back.

    Ah, thanks for the confirmation. So Dropbox beta is the culprit.
