Dropbox Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • UTranslateco Utranslate (@UTranslateco) reported

    @marvelapp I'm having a serious project debilitating issue in my project, there is a "Dropbox" upload error that is rendering half of my pages in my prototype inaccessible. I have not used Dropbox once. My company has a round of user testing tomorrow. Please assist.

  • harpaa01 Aaron Harpole (@harpaa01) reported from Santa Monica, California

    @dev_jac Hahaha, i still don’t trust Apple with this task yet. Dropbox has figured out and solved a hell of a lot of complex problems that are essential to making file sync “just work”. But I’m tempted. It’s probably better on system resources.

  • ebony_shawdii E b o n y (@ebony_shawdii) reported

    @QueenTriceyy Login and under the academic section you should see a Dropbox that says “other academic...” click it then click “Grade” and then click the double arrows to go to it and then it should give you the option to choose the semester you want to see!

  • mitsuhiko Armin Ronacher (@mitsuhiko) reported

    Dropbox continues to **** up their one product that I loved. Just got a dropbox popup to sign in again (self installed update i suppose) and it told me that where it wants to place my dropbox (~/Dropbox (Personal) and ~/Dropbox (Sentry)) there is already something (no shit).

  • Kaostic Kris West ¦ Kaostic (@Kaostic) reported

    @dragonwarter @CaptCoachPro @Ataraxia_GG This is the iTunes effect. People stick with it because they have forever. When I started using Roll20, I made sure to use OneNote for all notes and planning and Dropbox for all maps etc. So I'm not locked down.

  • WilfSplodNokit Richie (@WilfSplodNokit) reported

    @DropboxSupport I definitely have a plus account, I've been paying for several years. Perhaps it's simply inaccessible with a screen reader, this is a fairly regular issue

  • Hello_Evelina 𝔏𝔞𝔔𝔲𝔢𝔰𝔞𝔡𝔦𝔩𝔩𝔞 (@Hello_Evelina) reported

    Someone got into my Facebook on May 16 & it was taken down. They obtained my login info & also hacked into my Yahoo email, Photobucket, DropBox, Samsung, & Google accounts. They tried to get into my AOL & Snapchat. I have secured those but I'd like my Facebook back. @facebook

  • invig Matthew Salmon (@invig) reported

    @marcoarment Well actually... Dropbox loses a lot of money. Turns out storing stuff online is a terrible business.

  • jwleblan Joel LeBlanc (@jwleblan) reported

    @sandofsky @RebeccaSlatkin Just nuke it and never look back. @Dropbox is terrible.

  • Doodlebugisdood ProfoundlyTrivialDoodleBug (@Doodlebugisdood) reported

    @ScrivenerApp @DropboxSupport Anybody in the Twitterverse know how to fix the synching issue with Scrivener for iOS iPad and dropbox. I can’t get it to synch and can’t get to my novel. I’m getting desperate and can’t get help.

  • Doodlebugisdood ProfoundlyTrivialDoodleBug (@Doodlebugisdood) reported

    @scbwi Hello, everyone. I’m having terrible problems with Scrivener for iOS synching with Dropbox. I’m trying to find an affordable alternative that will work for iPad iOS. Or if anybody has tips on how to fix synch in IOS with dropbox, please let me know. Thanks.

  • l_aciel Jess Seto (@l_aciel) reported

    Ngl pre dropbox I was terrible at maintaining my files usually because I did something self sabotaging without noticing so I promise nothing.

  • nilrog nilrog (@nilrog) reported

    “the company is getting more aggressive to try to convert users and get people to treat Dropbox as more than “just a folder.”” The big problem here is...@Dropbox IS just a folder...nothing more...nothing less...but, unfortunately, they are too blinded by 💸 to understand that...

  • joanna_haddock Joanna Haddock (@joanna_haddock) reported

    @TolgaAktas_ @DaniRabaiotti I save everything to a cloud facility like Dropbox or my University server through a VPN as QUICKLY as possible, makes me nervous if I don’t. USB or hard drive for data for no more than a couple of days in the interim 💪🏼

  • Eric_WVGG eric “part of the problem” wvgg (@Eric_WVGG) reported

    There's this project called NextCloud, you can roll out a private Dropbox-style server! Has lightweight Mac and iOS and Linux clients, you get as much space as you feel like cramming into it.

  • Eric_WVGG eric “part of the problem” wvgg (@Eric_WVGG) reported

    Why… a bunch of disparate ideas piled up. Wanted to replace a USB backup drive with a NAS. Wanted a HomeBridge server running so I can control my air conditioner from my iPhone. But the big one is dropping Dropbox, for good.

  • hellonowinski Nowinski Creative (@hellonowinski) reported

    @DropboxSupport Still v slow. 'My Files' finally loaded but all so slow still. + I'm seeing apps like Excel/PPT get glitchy when opened. They're making my comp re-DL all my Smart Synced online-only files that are tied to the apps. So now my comp is constantly churning what should be online-only.

  • brookeecc Brooke Christine (@brookeecc) reported

    Sorry for tweeting about my Dropbox so much lately, I’m getting a home and i wanna put a lot money down. When I get it, I’ll slow it down lol

  • SlavaTheThird Слава Третий (@SlavaTheThird) reported

    @photovirus @sandofsky Also, Dropbox drastically slows down the startup time on systems without SSD.

  • STFUImTweetn0_o C🔺C🔺HR|Business|Strategic Manager|Brand|Promo| (@STFUImTweetn0_o) reported

    @Dropbox @DropboxSupport You door dash , ionos , navy federal, bank of america, ebay , amazon several other trifling disgusting companies need to be shut down and fined and I am not playing these social media contact and report my account I want you shut down for it

  • TheCyberSecExp Robert Pritchard (@TheCyberSecExp) reported

    @hacks4pancakes @josephfcox It does highlight the problem of extra authentication on mobile devices. Maybe the answer is something like Apple Pay - you authenticate to the device and it's that plus the stored auth token which give you access to FB, Dropbox or whatever

  • vnoel Vincent Noel (@vnoel) reported

    @marcoarment Due to this I've remove Dropbox from my launch-at-login app list. I couldn't believe I was doing it

  • robbdiazz Rob Diaz 💻⚡️ (@robbdiazz) reported

    @ow Dropbox is still far superior than Google Drive for pro users. Used G suite for a year and it was complete chaos: sync issues, local/cloud-only discrepancies, confusing UX. Plus, the "restore deleted files" option from Dropbox has saved me a few times.

  • alexpheby Alex Pheby (@alexpheby) reported

    @rdflynn @Dropbox Will look into the above. IT have disabled sync on the Mac client (because it has "issues").

  • edwardhorsford Ed Horsford (@edwardhorsford) reported from London Colney, England

    Well @Dropbox appears to have deleted one of my repos with lots of work in it. Slow clap indeed 👏. Incomprehensible reply from Dropbox support makes me think I should run very quickly away - syncing clearly isn’t something they can handle.

  • studioAnchorbal KenKelleher (@studioAnchorbal) reported

    @DropboxSupport @umhishamb It's terrible - not sure why you did this

  • zyxoof mecca ✨ (@zyxoof) reported


  • jwadyer James Dyer (@jwadyer) reported

    @DropboxSupport smart sync not working with my work account on my new computer. Downloading all files from my work account. Asus UX305CA. Please help!

  • QuSysTCD Goold_Group (@QuSysTCD) reported from Wicklow, Leinster

    @AlineVidotto That software is terrible - i just bought Dropbox business account and never looked back !

  • Unseen64 Unseen64 (@Unseen64) reported

    @hogsy16 my issue in those cases is lack of free-time: my day-jobs and family keep me busy most of the week, i'm not able to check old articles to find & replace broken videos :( Our major Patrons have access to our Dropbox as we can pay it thanks to their donations

  • AbsolutelyJosh Josh (@AbsolutelyJosh) reported

    @LadySapphire__ Gets transferred to like a holding area (trash) of the server with the original assumption that someone (you, law enforcement etc) might have a change of mind and need it restored. Stays there until they empty it. A few apps have explicit permanent delete features, like Dropbox

  • ghostly_gf queen squishy (@ghostly_gf) reported

    can someone help me with reasons why Dropbox videos in links I share with others will lag for them but not me idk how to fix it

  • gothick Matt Gibson (@gothick) reported

    @klangoso @marcoarment I’m just hoping they *can* be Sherlocked. I mean, Dropbox launched when Apple’s iDisk was available, and they only got my subscription because Apple’s version was bloody terrible...

  • greystate Chriztian Steinmeier (@greystate) reported

    @DropboxSupport Thanks! Must have been a fluke since I've been unable to reproduce the issue.

  • Indi_pops India Barnardo (@Indi_pops) reported

    .@Dropbox & @DropboxSupport I've found your email customer service to be unhelpful in explaining issues with my account, I keep asking for answers & get automatic replies mid chain. It turns out I can't recover my account, so I guess that means our relationship is over :'(

  • real_Obliterous Shawn Somers (@real_Obliterous) reported

    @marcoarment Doesn't fix the problem, and if the preview I saw was indicative of the future, it gives me a reason to move OFF of Dropbox.

  • jkatcher74 Jason Katcher (@jkatcher74) reported

    Near picture perfect covered calls on Dropbox. Sold July 19 $25 calls for $2.30. May expire worthless tomorrow. Plan to sell a bunch more 8/9 options given #earnings volatility until that ceiling of $27 is broken with force. Don't trust this rate cut driven rally. $DBX #stocks

  • willislim Willis (@willislim) reported

    @ozjs More of an annoyance rather than performance issues as such. I hardly use Dropbox anymore - there is one of my album vendors that uses it when I upload client wedding albums and that's it. I use either OneDrive (work) or iCloud drive.



  • mallika_rao Mallika Padma Rao (@mallika_rao) reported

    The dropbox app made my phone run so hot (and slow). I picked it up and it was like the inverse experience of when a chihuahua is shivering in your arms. I felt almost tender toward it — poor lil guy. Shame on you Dropbox!

  • Opticalmouse Joshua Lee (@Opticalmouse) reported

    i wonder when the day will come when a giant cloud server like dropbox or icloud just fails and deletes everyones data.

  • jennytha Jenn (@jennytha) reported

    @jonpurdy @marcoarment @Dropbox Ugh I just noticed this too. It's made my laptop suuuuuuuper slow. syncing files used to be seamless and now I have the wheel of death every two seconds.

  • WirlOfWirls Tanya Harrison (@WirlOfWirls) reported

    @JonathanMosen @Dropbox Yeah it's terrible, so I just found the folder, made a shortcut to it and whacked that on my desktop.

  • pwalk12 Paige Walker (@pwalk12) reported

    @UPS @UPSHelp you should be doing everything you can to get this dropbox shut down immediately. Absolutely insane you’ve let this continually happen for over 6 months to a year now without doing anything about it.

  • AdamColeman AdamColeman (@AdamColeman) reported

    @DropboxSupport This is a terrible UX you're trying to push. You provide a great simple service...One folder shared everywhere that the user wants it to be shared. It doesn't need to be any fancier than it already is.

  • eBookNoir eBookNoir 🥃 (@eBookNoir) reported

    @adamjury @Dropbox Ive had nothing but issues with it. An even worse resource hog then before. I’ve turned it off on all my computers and now just go to the website.

  • XephThePanda XephThePanda 🌈🐼🏳️‍🌈 (@XephThePanda) reported

    @nowvoicethis @nowvoicethis @Chuck_Huber Okay, small problem. I keep trying to upload the above video file on Dropbox both in my files and on the entry submission page, and, well, I keep getting a “Something went wrong” error everytime

  • pk_sullivan PK Sullivan (@pk_sullivan) reported

    Dropbox is adding 'features' and bloat when it should be doubling down on its core premise: cross-platform synced storage. Give us a reasonably priced consumer option for $1-$3 a month and I'd pay it. I'm not doing $10/month when Apple gives me 50gb for $1.

  • zyxoof mecca✨ (@zyxoof) reported

    sorry i let you guys down. it's all my fault. i shouldnt have said anything to Nathan and every time we'd talk i'd get a bad vibe from him but, since his content was everything to me. and now his career is done and it's my fault. we talked more that wasnt in the dropbox :/

  • pwalk12 Paige Walker (@pwalk12) reported

    @UPSHelp Dropbox location: 2500 W William Cannon Dr, Austin, TX 78745 — read the reviews for yourself. "The package was never scanned and has essentially disappeared." "My package mysteriously went missing from this dropbox location and UPS has not resolved the issue."

  • quantian1 Quantian (@quantian1) reported

    the Dropbox CEO cashing out of his company as its stock gets marked down by mutual funds to buy a penthouse apartment that is *literally sinking into the ground* is too on the money to be a bad Silicon Valley joke

  • ShutterLenz ShutterLenz Photography (@ShutterLenz) reported

    Regret of moving away from iPhone.. Missing the air drop Using dropbox to move files is just too damn slow #dropbox #Airdrop #Apple I want to go back to iPhone

  • cyChop Cyrille Chopelet (@cyChop) reported

    @kirschhoffer @Dropbox @ownCloud I've personally begun moving to Nextcloud, a fork of ownCloud, but which seemed a bit more active. Satisfied so far, all files encrypted: even if you gain access to my server, you will have trouble accessing my data.

  • egadmypickle Tyler Egad (@egadmypickle) reported

    @arstechnica @RonAmadeo Hey @arstechnica, I just got a response from them. It seems that Dropbox had this occur because of an error, and "some users were accidentally exposed to the app for a short period of time." It looks like they're attempting to revert this.

  • evolutionwins JB (@evolutionwins) reported

    @Dropbox Your new app is f'ing terrible. Dumping your product as a business user. Worst UX/UI ever.

  • jimfantazzia Jim Fantazzia (@jimfantazzia) reported

    @DropboxSupport if/when this rolls out, make it so I can remove it from the dock on Mac if I chose, Yesterday, I could not remove it form the dock without shutting down the entire app all together.

  • RobairreG Rob Grant (@RobairreG) reported

    @DropboxSupport The new app is terrible. If you force this on me I will cancel my subscription immediately.

  • drako_den Drako's Den (@drako_den) reported

    @arstechnica Dropbox lost me years ago when they decided to "expire" the extra storage they gave me for certian milestones. Putting me back down to even less than the original amount during Sign up. I use Mega now.

  • DropboxSupport Dropbox Support (@DropboxSupport) reported

    Update: The issue with the Dropbox desktop app has been resolved, though there might be a short lag for some users to see resolution. Thank you for your patience as we worked through this.
