Windows 11 and Dropbox permission issue

What I’m trying to do

I got a new work laptop with Windows 11 and I am trying to set up my Obsidian folder. It is located under Dropbox, and previously I have used this successfully from multiple computers (though win 10). Now I get an access error when trying to add this vault:

Error: EACCES: permission denied, lstat ‘path to folder’

I can access the Dropbox files from other software so I am wondering what is wrong here.

Things I have tried

I tried to find help on this forum, in the documentation and with the help of google, but either my search terms are wrong or nobody else has this issue.

Any help would be appreciated.
