Recently in an update to the Mac OS X Dropbox client they added a ‘Move to Dropbox’ right click menu entry (without asking).

Here’s how to remove it.

In the terminal run:

sudo rm -rf /Library/DropboxHelperTools

Thanks Dan Merino.

  1. This is no longer working, probably the setting was overwritten. Time to find a more permanent fix…

  2. Ben King says:

    Dropbox now has a command line option to remove the ‘move to dropbox’.

    1. quit dropbox
    2. run /Applications/ –move-to-dropbox=False
    3. restart dropbox
