My operating system is Mac OS X Version 10.7.5. Earlier, I accidentally quit Dropbox (from my Menubar). The green checkmark that indicates all files are updated was still there prior to my quitting the application. But when I quit Dropbox, it disappeared from my Menubar. I then downloaded and installed the latest version of Dropbox for Mac, and now the icon appears on my Menubar... but it's still connecting. It's been like this for around 4 hours already. I don't understand why my Dropbox folder doesn't indicate "connected" and why I can't access the Dropbox website, because I'm able to connect to the Internet.

I need to access my updated Dropbox folder (urgent). Please help, and thanks in advance! :)

I waited for a couple of minutes... then I checked my Menubar again and saw that there was a green checkmark. I don't know why this actually happened, but it did. I didn't do anything, so maybe you just have to wait for the connection to be verified if something like this happens.

Thanks for replying back. Even though you didn't "do anything" the reply can be helpful so others know what to expect. (y)
