I have used the dropbox backup feature and I now find that I do not have access to any of my Family Historian projects. I do not know what I have done wrong.

I am using FH6.2 and when the small green number appears next to an individual to let me know that, in this case, Find My Past has found a match that I need to confirm (or otherwise) I cannot open the Web Page.
