Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Democracy_Dude The Democracy Dude (@Democracy_Dude) reported

    @lp_gallagher @AcademicChatter @onedrive and backs up everything to one drive later on. I tried syncing one drive to my dropbox folder but had some technical issues and just gave up. Found backing up via copy paste easier

  • CGFIndies Tom Willoughby (@CGFIndies) reported

    "We're closing your Dropbox account in 30 days unless you sign in" is what Dropbox has been telling me for a year or two. Looks like they finally did it. Good, saves me a job.

  • DraftUK Draft (@DraftUK) reported

    Woke up with excitement due to being asked to produce an additional 12 compositions, as well as 2 dynamic trailer idents, only to find that my default FL Studio project folder has swapped, including files, from my C: to my Dropbox. **** knows how. Life on hold whilst I fix

  • Christoffson Chris Christoff (@Christoffson) reported

    @craigbosco @salva Yeah I think he took it down too much 🔥🔥 it was a numb numb juice remix. and the Dropbox link to the full song..there’s a sample of it pinned on his page rn

  • ClaudeCarbon Claudio Carbone (@ClaudeCarbon) reported

    @Chris_Gammell Have 3 hdds on my former laptop, spread stuff everywhere. VMs can definitely go anywhere, be copied & moved w/o issues. Can save y workspace on a shared folder, and sync that w dropbox/github etc Don't do this with graphical heavy stuff though, performance is not "that" good

  • KSchuldorff Theo (@KSchuldorff) reported

    @adamjury No problem Might be worthwhile to investigate a proper VCS (for example ***, mercurial), too, as an additional layer on top of Dropbox (then search by commit, and you find the exact really-real-final-done-v2 you want)

  • less_easy Less Mowing, More Flowers, More Wildlife, Easy! (@less_easy) reported

    We do indeed, everyone write to your local council and ask them for their policy on reducing mowing. Mention that the UK Parliament declared an environmental emergency in may 2019. Further down my timeline is a Dropbox link to a rough draft of a sample letter.

  • LickingBui King Big Bui (@LickingBui) reported

    Since the Dropbox titles are not working for me recently, this is a quick story with Vivian being, well...Vivian. Could also say this is the result of that poll that she won last month.

  • dpacemaker David Pace (@dpacemaker) reported

    @iAm_erica @YanivC I email signed PDFs all the time, and I used to do homework on my iPad(when posted online), I would fill it out using GoodNotes or PDF Expert, and then email it using stock iOS email app, or use the Dropbox function through Western Michigan. I think your issue is gmail, not iOS.

  • shelhorowitz ShelHorowitzGreenMkt (@shelhorowitz) reported

    @Dropbox Trying to install on a different computer. App AND your web contact page not recognizing my login. Passcode was sent to email but even when I tried both typing in and copying/pasting it didn't work. shel at principledprofit dotcom

  • JMMZHerrera Juan Miguel Herrera (@JMMZHerrera) reported

    @Apple The new #Dropbox app is causing serious battery drain across ALL platforms by not releasing the processor and letting laptops and devices go to sleep. Bit me last week with my new Mac. Best advice is to dump DB. Problem solved.

  • SluglineApp Slugline (@SluglineApp) reported

    Over the weekend we pushed out Slugline 1.2.4 for iOS. It’s a big bug fix update that makes file saving, Dropbox interactions, and writing with a keyboard better and safer.

  • nishantgandhi Nishant Gandhi (@nishantgandhi) reported

    @free_rider Welcome to Apple Walled Garden. Henceforth you’ll face these problems on a daily basis. My suggestion, install cloud file sharing like Dropbox or Google Drive. I haven’t found a foolproof saving and sharing method on the iPhone. And the less we talk of iCloud the better it is.

  • wardomatic Ward Jenkins (@wardomatic) reported

    @jimmortensen My problem is content I've worked on that cannot be posted on my site because of legal restrictions. Instead, I provide a link to a Dropbox folder with images of scenes I've boarded. An extra step or two, but I don't know what else to do.

  • alexMYCS A L E X M Y C S (@alexMYCS) reported

    I’d love to set a day aside where I just sit down and sort out all my external hard drives, Dropbox and Google Drive just to get everything in order.

  • kylelonghurst Kyle Longhurst (@kylelonghurst) reported

    @JoshDance I use Dropbox for a lot of the files I need to access on consistent basis. I also have a server running RAID 5 at home for local backups.

  • YungIkeSly 🌸✨ Yikes ✨🌸 (@YungIkeSly) reported

    took the model downloads post down! but if you still want em, you can DM me and I'll still be giving them out for the next day or so before I delete the dropbox upload outright

  • DinoNuggetsYT Aidan🦖 (@DinoNuggetsYT) reported

    If you have a problem or concern please tell me upfront and don’t decide to make a tweet or a dropbox or a video or anything. Be a good civil human being instead

  • Mo_Abdelwahabx Mohamed Abdelwahab (@Mo_Abdelwahabx) reported

    @DropboxSupport There was an error downloading your file. !!! pleaseeee

  • Race_Jeeper K-Holes & Kenworths (@Race_Jeeper) reported

    Same same but different. Strippers listen to your problems AND put ****** in your face. Dropbox girls just toss it out there for eyecandy and cash.

  • lalitmangal Lalit Mangal (@lalitmangal) reported

    Upgraded to @Dropbox Professional plan, just to use Smart-sync feature. Couldn't make it work, terrible UX on Mac. The prompt doesn't show up at all. Downgraded back to basic plan. #fail

  • mohit_bindra Mohit Bindra (@mohit_bindra) reported

    @AppleSupport am not receiving Apple ID two-step verification codes by SMS, and can't login to iCloud any other way. Please help! My mobile number is of Malta (+356), am receiving SMSes from other senders (Google, Dropbox) on it, but not from Apple.

  • LogicalDame Nancy (@LogicalDame) reported

    @JeffBezos Your customer service is exceptional. W/o them, Amazon wouldn't be the goto store.. The changes in shipping are causing issues. My Mom says she now fears buying anything else b/c she would have to have a smartphone+find a dropbox if she had a need to return. BAD Idea.

  • _PerlaGarciaa Perla🌻 (@_PerlaGarciaa) reported

    Did I really just chase a guy down because he forgot his card at the ATM! @WellsFargo yall need to have a little dropbox or something just saying can’t be using the bit of gas I have for this.

  • littlevixxxn SUCCubus (@littlevixxxn) reported

    I have to put down a deposit at a school in NYC by Monday. Being back in NYC would mean WAY more HQ content/more collabs. I just need to make $300 by Monday. SO, the next 10 people who dm me “🖤” get my dropbox for $15 and the next 10 who dm me “👻” get my snap for $15 LIFETIME!!

  • morganTsmith7 Morgan Smith 🔞 (@morganTsmith7) reported

    Hey @DropboxSupport, I have a problem with my subscription. I recently went to dropbox plus as my subscription per month, but it's now downgraded me to basic, since I changed it due to a change of payment.

  • tattedbustymia ★ 𝕸𝖎𝖆 ★ 🔞 (@tattedbustymia) reported

    That being said, I’m now down by £60 so someone buy my premium and Dropbox 😂

  • eumithres saki 🌠 (@eumithres) reported

    got a notification my dropbox acc will be deleted if I don't login, bold of them to assume I still remember my password

  • TheUcheSmith Цснэ  Sмiтн (@TheUcheSmith) reported

    After careful observation of Nigerians' comments in the recent events, from, #Nairamarley 's case to the recent slap from American embassy to stop "dropbox" in visa processing, I have come to conclusion that our government is least of our problem. The problem is NIGERIANS!...

  • jessamyn jessamyn west (@jessamyn) reported

    @kvanh No built-in Voice Memos for the iPad. And the issue right now is that the stock iPad only has "email" and "message" as options for getting the file OFF of it, so I need a Dropbox (or something) option as well.

  • roydanroy Daniel Roy (@roydanroy) reported

    @scinawa on the paper: generally, no. workflow: of course, but you dial that in and then you keep it. version control: dropbox, oh my, please, please no! overleaf: don't like it. ends up producing tex that doesn't compile. super slow. ***: yes.

  • AhadSheriff Ahad() (@AhadSheriff) reported

    I’m guessing the reason why I don’t have these issues with Dropbox is because of their “block-level file copying” algorithm that only copies individual changed bits, rather than just reuploading everything like Google does.

  • _jaynem52 Jayne (@_jaynem52) reported

    @Dropbox please advise where I can contact someone about a problem with Dropbox plus

  • jackf723 Jack Swagger (@jackf723) reported

    @stevo399 @masonasons All obvious sarcasm aside, you're right. And this goes to show that while people should be careful who they give their source to and never put their source in a dropbox folder or on a server, more importantly people should grow up and not abuse stolen sourcecode by making clones.

  • TellStevens Tellito (@TellStevens) reported

    @surface My biggest issue is deciding how much memory I need to run some big construction pdf plans off of Dropbox. Primarily need it for that and email

  • WhatTheBit Stefan Constantine (@WhatTheBit) reported

    @RolfeWinkler @Dropbox @googledrive you're probably the only person i've ever seen saying dropbox is terrible and buggy.

  • andropodium Rhododendron Repairman (@andropodium) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yes, thanks. The issue is getting from animal position point 3 to point 4. My system consistently overshoots the desired position.

  • andropodium Rhododendron Repairman (@andropodium) reported

    @DropboxSupport Thanks. Unfortunately, that made it worse. Now getting SSL socket errors for your and other websites. Will need to update several Linux packages when I get to a decent internet connection.

  • andropodium Rhododendron Repairman (@andropodium) reported

    Hey @Dropbox , this new human verification system has serious issues. I have been rolling the damn ball for 20 minutes and still can’t access my account.

  • leejackson Lee Jackson (@leejackson) reported

    Inbox zero and admin done. Computer also now backing up ℅ iCloud after my Dropbox issues - so how, food, Bball and @psayorks tomorrow 👌🏀🎤 #whataweek

  • JoshuaH0205 Joshua (@JoshuaH0205) reported

    @LivingTombstone Hey Tomb, i wanted to ask you, if you could fix the dropbox links in your older videos, since dropbox changed thier public link system.

  • ToBe3D M. Dayton (@ToBe3D) reported

    @chick_in_kiev Evernote has no way of exporting out to word so down the line when you need to share the document, there are certain restriction that can be a pain. I would say use word but save it in a shared dropbox file. Dropbox has built word into their platform now so you can edit on the go

  • Technol53581657 Technology (@Technol53581657) reported

    Reverse Engineering Dropbox These days everyone talks about data “in the cloud.” However, before that phrase was fashionable, there were a few pioneers and one of the most famous of these is Dropbox — a service that let you store files on a remote server that dates back to …

  • Anansias Anansias (@Anansias) reported

    @DropboxSupport waiting for an answer from your services - computer paralysed by Dropbox and issue ongoing for a week. 48 hours since your last answer

  • seriousssam Samer Sabri (@seriousssam) reported

    @paulbloomatyale @wgervais Also to provide a technological answer if you use gdrive or Dropbox or sharelatex or anything from the 21st century this shouldn't be a problem anymore

  • FallenLuciflex Fallen For Him | 2019 Release (12k/50k) (@FallenLuciflex) reported

    @RylannWatts I shove them on Dropbox and then keep the links on a private discord server aha

  • mkalina mkalina (@mkalina) reported

    While I was figuring out how to fix my daily logged-out-annoyance with @onedrive (with MS-support on the phone), @Dropbox uploaded ~1500MB of data, synchronized it with all other Macs and I did not even notice that it happened. MS, you really need to work on this app.

  • fictionhuman Glitch (@fictionhuman) reported

    @faizero2 I have kinda similar problem with Google drive too. Dropbox works fine.

  • iamstevensewell Steven Sewell (@iamstevensewell) reported from Indianapolis, Indiana

    @Tony_Vasquez_ @Apple @Dropbox Yeah that’s honestly the worst part. The normal slowing down I can handle.

  • RHendery Rachel Hendery (@RHendery) reported

    @Infoventurer @ScrivenerApp I had problems like that with a previous version of scrivener on Windows, and the developers were super helpful by email, sending me a different version of the install via Dropbox or something until I had one that worked.

  • ryagas Ryan (@ryagas) reported from Brea Chem, California

    @calum_davies_ Yeah. I hear more creatives are doing something similar. For you, it’d boil down to personal preference since you likely have non-Apple services for the important stuff (Dropbox/Google Drive instead of iCloud, for example.)

  • gullevek 呉⚛ (@gullevek) reported

    I can just hope that the re-install of Dropbox fixed this ******* slow down issues. Now the only thing left is to recover those 800GB of volume that is not visible from command line but only from the disk utility interface

  • CoyneLloyd Coyne (@CoyneLloyd) reported

    @HipCityReg we're out here wearing allbirds and dropbox tshirts and you're making us look terrible

  • DearDara Dara Grumdahl (@DearDara) reported

    @chick_in_kiev My desktop computer automatically backs up my word docs on Dropbox & it does cost $10 a month but I think it’s totally worth it, and I can get at everything from my Dropbox app on my phone too if I want to. It assuages my irrational fears of the house burning down with the ms!!

  • BarbRoos Barbara Roos (@BarbRoos) reported

    @DropboxSupport Another browser, exact same problem, so spending half an hour to remove personal data etc is not going to work. How about removing that piece of ... software from your website, because obviously I'm not the first person to have this problem. And I still cant access my own files!

  • chigh Clair ✊❄️ (@chigh) reported

    @DropboxSupport Performance is slow and it sometimes takes seconds for the cursor to move, etc.

  • RafaelFCM rafaEL (@RafaelFCM) reported

    @Dropbox @DropboxSupport THANK U for the support, I am now able to access my files. My issue was entirely relatated to my office network set up, nothing to do with @Dropbox .

  • ShesQuackers ShesQuackers (@ShesQuackers) reported

    @eventhorizon451 My Word backs up to my OneDrive, which backs up to my Dropbox, and there's another complete file set on my tablet, and important stuff also goes on a RAID1 server just in case. It's not paranoia if the electronics really are out to get you.

  • cspilchuk Chrissy Spilchuk (@cspilchuk) reported

    @Dropbox @DropboxSupport a user should not have to do the reCAPTCHA thing 20 times to login... figure out a better solution.
