    Hi Peter, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!
     
    This would be something our Box Support team would like to investigate with you and may require specific account information. 
     
    I've gone ahead and created a ticket for you so that an agent can work directly with you on looking into this. Please check your email for details.
     
    Thanks for your patience!

    I have the same issue.  I had to create a shortcut on the desktop, but it no longer has the drag and drop functionality I had before.  The previous blue Box folder on my desktop is gone.  I now have a Box Icon Shortcut.  Ugh.

    Same issues from others in the last few days - the previous blue Box folder on my desktop is gone since updating the OS - is there a resolution pending for this

    Any update for when Box will work on current Mac's again, there was a workaround which involved disabling security FOR ALL APPS which obviously is a non-starter, but I'm wondering when it is planned to be fixed - having to use box via the web page, and not being able to use files offline is a pain !

    But then, I notice France doesn't respond to any of the questions here, so I'm guessing these fora are just a place to make us feel like there is support :-(

    Come on Box...no response in over a month?! This is an essential part of my Box workflow.

    There was just an update and the problem still persists. Is this ever going to be fixed?  

    May need to find a different service.  Very frustrating with both lack of fix and lack of response as to if it will ever be fixed.

    Actually, I complained above, but with a colleague we found a link "ln -s" does the job
    "ln -s /Users/myname/Library/CloudStorage/Box-Box Box"
    and drag and drop of files works.
