Anyway I clicked the one on the bar at the top as you suggested and I do get 1 up to date and 2 the account displayed is the same one displayed in 1Password. Store them in the root of the Dropbox folder and wait for Dropbox to finish its sync. Now, go to Dropbox. Thanks - that worked.

I was leaving it for a few days to make sure it was working and didn't stop again but it seems OK now. It was definitely dropbox, somehow.
