    I have just set up a new MacBook Air and in this process I have installed dropbox which has ben syncing for a while. When I started up the machine today the icon in the top menu bar is gone.

    Tried deleting the finder.plist file and restarted the machine but no luck.

    I have caffeine and better touch tool installed and those icons show up fine...

    Any suggestions?

    I noticed sometimes when I restart my computer that Dropbox didn't automatically start up with it and obviously the icon was missing as well. Have you tried just launching Dropbox after a restart?

    In System Preferences, go to Users and Groups then Login items tab.
    Ensure that DropBox is loading on boot

    When I double click the app icon nothing happens.

    ----------

    The Dropbox app was not listed at all....strange

    But adding the app manually worked.

    Thanks! :)

    In that case I would recommend fully deleting Dropbox from your computer following the steps outlined in the following link. Then reinstall Dropbox and see what happens.

    Best way to fully delete a program.
