  • BabaCugs BABA: it All Starts In LDN… (@BabaCugs) reported

    the question before I begin this I'm terrible with tech ( sometimes ) is it better if i create an email address and those interested email me or dropbox ? i feel like belongs in the hands of true believers those who actually care dropbox: even trolls will get it... no ?

  • boots6972 ⋒ boots (@boots6972) reported

    Because there has been issues with correct payment & those wanting to purchase in china & other places…I have created a Gumroad account…link is in my bio..for those that like my free stuff I will slowly be adding it to Gumroad as well, so Dropbox link will not be posted here

  • quincognito_ irl 🐙👨‍👦 ~ Eight Arms, Three Hearts, Can't Lose (@quincognito_) reported

    @ChunkyReader hi, I’ve been trying to set up dropbox as a file source in chunky but whenever i add my account, only a random set of files are actually displayed — none of them being my Comics folder. Any idea how I can fix this?

  • AbeerAlhattami abeer (@AbeerAlhattami) reported

    @iStock I bought a logo two days ago, and when I download it into the dropbox, I did bot find it there. I contacted iStock through email but till now my issue did not solve yet.

  • TomSCotton Tom Cotton (@TomSCotton) reported

    @producerjacob What a run mate! Please tell me you’re off to fix Dropbox

  • VentaDarling VentaDarling (@VentaDarling) reported

    the GOP is not addressing the issue at all - once again the GOP can NOT debate an actual issue @SenateDems every county has to have one dropbox in Georgia- ok what the GOP doesn't tell you is some counties have 5 Million people and one drop box - SMDH

  • CACC CACC (@CACC) reported

    @harrisonjaime It doesn't really though. Most hourly wage workers will not get time off. Most corporations will not recognize it as a paid holiday. Govt and Financials will close but it really doesn't address the issue. Vote by mail and Dropbox will alleviate the long lines

  • AlsGeekLab Al's Geek Lab (@AlsGeekLab) reported

    @CoalDominion Dropbox is my first guess. It's probably holding a stub, so go into task manager and kill any Dropbox process after shutting it down normally (it often leaves helper processes even after shutdown), then see if it can be deleted

  • Bubblepipemedia Nathaniel Chambers (@Bubblepipemedia) reported

    For those who design #boardgames is there an issue with making your TTS public when you don’t have a publisher? Will it reduce your chances to get a publisher? Would I be better off making it public on steam workshop or a file I shared on say dropbox. #boardgame #gamedesign

  • nutz_beat BeatNutz (@nutz_beat) reported

    @imbabebee @Wav_Lee @DILLION____ So then vlc is good with Apple right? Cuz I have the same problem tryna listen to Dropbox files so I personally download em on my phone but my storage getting low 😭😭

  • ofbrokenwolves Alice the Watermelon Jellybean (ruiidux) (@ofbrokenwolves) reported

    cool. so on top of a rope photo getting taken down for solicitation, which was neither the content nor the caption, I'm also now being gaslighted by my mother. it's a wonderful life, ya know? 🙃 anybody wanna buy some vids? I can send dropbox links if you need to be lowkey.

  • LukeAHopkins 𝗟𝘂𝗸𝗲 𝗛𝗼𝗽𝗸𝗶𝗻𝘀 (@LukeAHopkins) reported

    @Lizardguy17 @Virgurilla @KatlikeMoai When you upload a file to Dropbox, you have no guarantees that the file will remain there indefinitely. You could stop paying, they could go bust, it could get lost. None of these are issues with a decentralised storage system

  • DextersTechLab DextersTechLab (@DextersTechLab) reported

    @CoalDominion Weird, try shutting down dropbox and shift-delete the folder that contains the file. Make sure you have backups of anything else there too!

  • _anmolmalhotra Anmol (@_anmolmalhotra) reported

    @__HarshilShah How many years until they follow the same path as Dropbox etc and make their product terrible? 😢

  • rafaelalvesgb Rafael Alves (@rafaelalvesgb) reported

    And I just forgot to say: some apps, like Dropbox, which were 64bits, simply stop working with no message of error. Why? What is happening? WTH you did, @Apple…? So disappointing. Unfortunately, Linux has become a OS alternative again…

  • SugarCubist l a __b e f a n a (@SugarCubist) reported

    “Couldn’t start dropbox/permissions error” **** popping up every time I start my computer why?? I’ve uninstalled dropbox and removed the folder for it ??

  • AramexSA Aramex South Africa (@AramexSA) reported

    @TiyiBevhula The DropBox service has no insurance due to legal limitations, so when a loss occurs, we do not replace or payout for the loss. However, should this be a problem or a great risk for you, perhaps you can look at using our other services like Postnet or our Clickway couriers.

  • nickisfour Nick (@nickisfour) reported

    Has/ does anyone use Dropbox to store project files and rushes for editors & freelancers to use across projects? Or is a dedicated server storage system with edit software integration better ?

  • FaithKeenan12 Fearless Fido (@FaithKeenan12) reported

    @pulte I can't g et the book!! When I go to the website, it doesn't load, and when I try Dropbox, I get an error code 🥺 and I ideas?

  • Gregchthomas Greg Thomas (@Gregchthomas) reported

    Oh ffs an extra load of invoices that i just found stuffed down the back of the dropbox radiator has doubled my tax bill 😱

  • itsJuliaHardy Julia Hardy 🌈 (@itsJuliaHardy) reported

    @DropboxSupport hey yeah I was talking to them - but the only solution was to relink it and it goes thru the whole re-download process. its frustrating as its always a silly naming or location issue that shouldn't be this hard to rectify without such drastic penalties

  • SpoonOfDoom Chris (@SpoonOfDoom) reported

    @itsJuliaHardy I've never had a problem with Dropbox, and I'm using it since beta. Whenever I had to reinstall or switch drives or whatever, it'd discover the existing files just fine (even if it takes a whole). BUT I've never used it with an external drive, so idk what issues that might bring.

  • pumpkin Alberto Calvo (@pumpkin) reported

    I feel sorry about Dropbox, but I miss the simple service that it was at the beginning, so I unsubscribed from my Pro account a while ago, and my largest files were scattered. Time to fix that.

  • sevannah_storm Sevannah Storm (@sevannah_storm) reported

    @asblakewrite Anj, cloud base your back-up. Use Google Drive or Dropbox, then this becomes a non-issue.

  • persistentpengn still_resisting #TeamPelosi #DemCast #FTVA #JLVRAA (@persistentpengn) reported

    @leftcoastbabe Oregon here- 100% voting from home state (aka voting by mail or dropbox) for over 20 years with ZERO problems. Zero.

  • AsymptoteRon Ronald Russell (@AsymptoteRon) reported

    @NickKnudsenUS @Sen_JoeManchin @SenatorSinema Makes sense except- Having long lived in a state with vote at home (mail/ dropbox) only voting I can't fathom why it's not nearer the top. No lines, no inconvenience, no weather/ virus issues, can be more thoughtful + improves participation in important local, smaller elections.

  • LeoGeckoLoveRes Dani D - LeopardGeckoLoveNRescue (@LeoGeckoLoveRes) reported

    @DrPepperTeacher @zigamorf @pulte Use the Dropbox like he posted, the site is overloaded but you can get it without issue off his Dropbox link he posted like 12 tweets back :-)

  • Braden_Sky Braden Sky (@Braden_Sky) reported

    @DropboxSupport Removing the desktop app was a terrible idea. I used Dropbox to avoid having to use Finder. This change makes no sense to me.

  • korina_adams korina_adams (@korina_adams) reported

    @NancyRaouf69 Dropbox link not working

  • ge_hurt Gwen Goode Hurt 💜🌷☮🐈🎵🎗 (@ge_hurt) reported

    @pulte For those getting wrong format error on the dropbox pdfs.... download the dropbox app and it works just fine.
