I think you're confusing Dropbox the application and service with a drop box, which is a generic directory/folder that has permissions so that it can be used as a drop box.

That choice, "Write Only (Drop Box)" is available throughout Mac OS even if you never installed Dropbox the application. It's not an "unneeded option," it's part of the system and you should just ignore it.

You are absolutely correct of course. Thanks for straightening me out. :)

OP>> Sorry for the bum steer. :eek:
