I suspect the Dropbox overlays are interfering with the Tortoise ones.
There are only so many overlay "slots" in Explorer, and if Dropbox is
using them up before Tortoise can get in, then Tortoise can't show you
any overlays.

Can you disable Dropbox overlays?

I believe a similar issue has been reported with Mozy and reported to
Mozy support.
