Dropbox Decryptor: What does it do?

Dropbox® Decryptor (v1.3 released June 23, 2014) from Magnet Forensics is a free tool that will decrypt the Dropbox filecache.dbx and config.dbx files, which are both encrypted SQLite databases. These two locations store information about files that have been synched to the cloud using Dropbox. Once decrypted by Dropbox Decryptor, the files are easily viewable in any SQLite browser.
