    @caseyliss @_matusevich @marcoarment @atpfm @siracusa First off, swearing isn’t called for. Let’s have a civil conversation if possible. Secondly, the Dropbox argument is a false equivalent (unless Catalina is randomly deleting files, which I don’t think is the issue).

  • EI8EJB ɮʀɨǟռ աɦɛʟǟռ (@EI8EJB) reported

    @gm8arv @kevtheskin @2m0sql No problem David, I have sent an email to you just now with the link to my Dropbox

  • PW_75 Pascal Pupskönich 🤘🏻🍰🤘🏻 (@PW_75) reported

    @1Password Dropbox sync. Win10, as with everything else, I just kept updating to recent patch levels. That strange 1PW issue, and other smaller things aside, the machine ran, just felt abysmally slower between reboots.

  • RealBadRobot Ashley (@RealBadRobot) reported

    @editblog Automatic project folder archive that zips ustself and uploads to Dropbox then closes the Nexus client and shuts down the computer.

    @GeorgeMNasif @q_tampa @Stereo_vii FOR SECURITY REASONS The Link to George Global Dropbox Has been removed for public Viewing.  Those who Donated to the new Secure Server and were invited by email still have access. Login to your Dropbox to view George Global Evidence Files.

  • Dario_Ciriello Dario Ciriello (@Dario_Ciriello) reported

    @TheophanesAvery That's weird. I know Word very well and use it by preference, and I've never had that happen. I agree with @may_carlen it's likely a syncing issue. FWIW, I hate Dropbox and never use it, and am not a fan of Scrivener, but I know many like it. IMO Word is the best tool there is.

  • may_carlen May Carlen 🕷 (@may_carlen) reported

    @TheophanesAvery That sounds like a syncing problem. Another program might do the same, depending on your settings. I use word and it took a while to realise that if I change computer, it overwrites my document if it was not synced to dropbox. However, I hear people saying Scrivener is good 😊

  • TDavisReed Timothy Davis-Reed (@TDavisReed) reported

    @DropboxSupport I can't seem to make files online only. When I "right click" on the file I don't get the smart sync option from the drop down. I am using a Mac with High Sierra 10.13.5. I don't get the image shown in all the tutorials online.

  • nev23 Kim Nevelsteen (@nev23) reported

    @bai0 @kettlecorn I'm not entirely sure. I watched a presentation by the CEO of DropBox. He described the problem of too many systems. I had the same problem described to me by a major gaming company. Perhaps the overload of software systems will drive people to interconnect.

  • ctfw529 ctfw529 (@ctfw529) reported

    @Soomedr_Duffy @SallyAlbright @keithellison @BernieSanders Not trying to convince you, but thats part Microsoft’s server system, lets you upload to their cloud, then make it public if you want, like Dropbox.

  • asolove adam so❤️ (@asolove) reported

    My day is made. Darkmode for @dropbox Paper, and the emoji picker <enter> issue is fixed.

  • aliwilgus Ali Wilgus @ ECCC #LL-5✨ (@aliwilgus) reported

    I have dived so deeply into the waters of Using Dropbox For Literally Everything I Hold Dear To My Heart that I'm going to teach a class, and thus drag even more souls down into this abyss.

  • jCbASpEr jCbAsI (@jCbASpEr) reported

    @limneos Hi, problem with AudioRecorder actual version, i save dropbox account but app don’t remember and don’t upload or download from dropbox . Can you help me !!!

  • EdBCollie 🐾Adorably Stupid @ F2, TFF🐾 (@EdBCollie) reported

    just a casual reminder that i do not accept refs hosted on FA. FA is down, this is the exact reason why I don't accept them. use refsheet . net, trello, dropbox, imgur, or google drive to host your references please. do not use: FA, Twitter, Telegram, Flickr, instagram

  • bake_bread20 tracy (@bake_bread20) reported

    @DropboxSupport Cannot use admin panel for team account. Keeps giving refresh error.

  • ADDcrafter Ol' Grumpy Carrie (@ADDcrafter) reported

    @coffeeaddict71 I don’t have very much because I am good and store all of my docs on our server. But it was all of the possibly contraband apps I installed - Kindle, Box, Dropbox, etc. org wide they are not supported so I “shouldn’t” have them, but I’m also the backup IT person, so no one cares

  • estebandiacono Esteban Diácono (@estebandiacono) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox Hello there. It is extremely annoying to keep receiving these "Your dropbox is full and no longer syncing" messages when I have 2.3 TB free space in my account. Please fix these emails, we really don't need the extra panic.

  • KEIHIKO_GALAXY 『Kei』| COMS CLOSED | read pinned (@KEIHIKO_GALAXY) reported

    Reminder its always a good idea to have coms info backed up in other places as a pdf/screenshot/word doc or smth, on your desktop, dropbox, google drive etc + alternate contact info for clients Pls dont rely on 1 site to do that (esp one thats known to go down every now n then)

  • KimZetter Kim Zetter (@KimZetter) reported

    I’m told issue w/ this was that election workers collected ballots from dropbox at 5pm, but when they returned at 7pm to lock the box and prevent voters from depositing ballots after hours that wouldn’t be counted, they forgot to collect the ballots that were deposited from 5-7pm

    I am a computer technician this morning. 😂😂. I miss the day that I always send @Oriadday all my computer technical issues. Some of the tools he recommended were still in my Dropbox.

  • Q8hoovers silverstone (@Q8hoovers) reported

    @DropboxBusiness hi, my dropbox app in my iPhone X is not working for the past week. I updated my IOS & still the app is not performing (shuts down once I open it).

    @CarmenCrincoli @contodomiamor @SwiftOnSecurity @vmiss33 Everybody all happily using box and dropbox and onedrive and whatnot with their hilari-o-perf and not even blinking an eye, I'm over here trying to move at sequential write IO speeds, what am I even thinkin, the money is in the slow

  • akachela chela: 30th anniversary edition (@akachela) reported

    @AbbeyJo13 @ericalynnhickey That sounds like the sublevel...I had to go down there because there's a mail dropbox. It's sketch. And that's terrifying!! I'm taking the stairs tomorrow 🙃

  • NathanaelB Nathanael Coyne (he/him) (@NathanaelB) reported

    Actually, I recall now, I worked on the document for several hours yesterday before I saved it for the first time. Terrible practice, I know. I do it often because so much of what I do is throwaway. Sorry @Dropbox for doubting you.

  • nixsmis Nixtinct. Needs rest 💤 (@nixsmis) reported

    @TartiiCat @refsheet yessss exactly! i have all my stuff saved on my hard drives and/or in dropbox, etc, so it doesn't matter what sites go down. i know how frustrating it is when suddenly you can't get to any of your links, and we all know FA's history....

  • webmink Simon Phipps (@webmink) reported from Southampton, England

    @davidgerard @mammm43 I access NextCloud using the remote server dialog in LibreOffice. I've not investigated Dropbox though, sorry. I do know the Dropbox integration on ChromeOS works fine but I don't know if the Linux subsystem can see it; I kinda doubt it.

  • saitojohn John Saito (@saitojohn) reported

    @asolove @Dropbox Hey Adam, we're aware of this issue and we should have a fix coming soon. Sorry for the annoyance!

  • trevorwelch trevor welch (@trevorwelch) reported

    @ocornut I used to trust @dropbox with projects just like what you’re describing, but their sync has gotten way worse over the last two years. I’ve had tons sync issues that have cost me a lot of time backtracking and recreating project states from backups

  • DropboxSupport Dropbox Support (@DropboxSupport) reported

    @lauriep61016670 Of course, Laurie! When you click on the shared link and it opens via the web interface, you should see the Download option on the upper right hand side of the screen. When you click on the drop-down menu, you have two options: Direct download, and Save to my Dropbox. 1/2

  • ForrestTheWoods Forrest Smith (@ForrestTheWoods) reported

    @ocornut Absolutely not. I have constant Dropbox sync issues and do not trust it for that level of work.

  • CompFacts Computer Facts (@CompFacts) reported

    Due to the DROPBOX flaw, you will need to reset your RDM SERVER.

  • gbisemi Giuseppe Bisemi (@gbisemi) reported

    @DropboxSupport None of the files that gives me error have been deleted. I'm getting the same error on ANY of my files in Dropbox. If I try to open them from my iPhone through iOS Dropbox app, I get 429 error.

  • devonjyork Devon (@devonjyork) reported

    @TristanLoanzon @SugarSync @onedrive @Dropbox The larger the demand on Sugarsync the more issues. Missing info. Shutdowns, even if for a few hours. Not syncing. We are getting where we have to share differently, but the point of transition to Sugarsync was to avoid reconfiguration folder set up. Too bad.

  • empika Edd Parris (@empika) reported

    @ocornut just checked, was around 13k files when i was using it. I think I also ran in to some issues because I got a new laptop and cloned the old one, which i think confused dropbox a bit.

  • TomWhite_TDAN Tom White (@TomWhite_TDAN) reported

    Dropbox $DBX reports after the close with expected move of +/- 10%. Shares are down over 50% from post IPO highs in Jun 2018. Spruce Point Cap calls them a 'Box of Empty Promises' & sees 25-60% downside!

  • vnvobit Higgs (@vnvobit) reported

    @DebbieKennett @PrivacyMatters @ICOnews And in that case it may be hard for data holders to demonstrate they are compliant with local requirements (see to remember dropbox setting up server farm in Ireland to host EU customers to provide that assurance) Hopefully whatever the solution it will be well publicised

  • steinarelden Steinar Elden (@steinarelden) reported

    @DropboxSupport I still get an error message (error 500). I have tried to use several types of programs (internet explorer, google mm), but I get the same error-message. Please send me the receipt by e-mail.

  • tommyhair2 killer k (@tommyhair2) reported

    @DropboxSupport If you randomly put a song on your iPhone and press the three-dot menu in the middle of the right side, there is a menu called "Save to Dropbox." When I press that button, I keep getting the warning "An unknown error has occurred. An error has occurred.

  • DawnXianaMoon Dawn Xiana Moon (@DawnXianaMoon) reported

    Things that are really annoying: Websites that force you to "play a game" in order to log in to your account. Even worse if you haven't even failed a login attempt. Here's looking at you, @dropbox. #UX

  • ethancrowley Ethan Crowley អុីថាន (@ethancrowley) reported

    @onedrive OneDrive always seems to have sync issues: guys, I've used @Dropbox with zero sync issues for a decade—you can probably figure out how to make this work. And I could go on and on...

  • dustykeleher Dusty Keleher (@dustykeleher) reported

    I’ve tried five times to upload a file to Dropbox. Three times I got errors message. The last two. The upload box just closed at the end. It’s no where. I’m going to walk into the sea.

  • macintacos Julian Torres (@macintacos) reported

    @mattcassinelli I switched it over to Dropbox and got a weird “too_many_write_operations” error

  • seungylee14 seung lee (@seungylee14) reported

    @nytimes I get asked if I sit around brainstorming dank memes -- I wish! today, for example, I was dealing with meetings on RFQs, AB2923, and work dropbox issues among others (aka bureaucrat shit) rather than tweeting to my heart's content

  • brooke Brooke Hammerling (@brooke) reported

    This is not only @Microsoft problem. This is a TECH problem. @facebook @kik @Dropbox and on and on....Every company is part of this. There needs to be something done.

  • catovitch Meowski Catovitch (@catovitch) reported

    @PwnySlaystation Dropbox is causing loads of issues for our users lately. I ******* hate all the cloud storage software, TBH. It's all terrible and causes problems. Which is not surprising as making the internet pretend to be a local filesystem IS INHERENTLY STUPID.

  • lauralawson Laura L. Visconti (@lauralawson) reported

    @DropboxSupport Kylie from your team sent me an email and we are hopefully resolving the problem. Thank you!

  • londiemurray #CIMS2020 (@londiemurray) reported

    @karinamatalon Close the Dropbox app and restart the computer. Sometimes a good restart solves the problem. It may not be communicating properly with Dropbox

  • ProphetofProvel Provel Voter (@ProphetofProvel) reported

    Nobody cares about that shit outside of Washington. I've got 52 GB of policy papers in my Dropbox, less than 1% accounts for the terrible reality STL finds itself in today, the rest simply never became realized.

  • artymorale Witch Lover (@artymorale) reported

    dont you hate it when you accidentally sync your whole dropbox onto your laptop and now your storage is all full and computer is slow and now you have to unsync everything but it takes 15 hours and this couldve been avoided if i didnt forget to selective sync earlier this year 🙄

  • robhatchmiller Rob Hatch-Miller (@robhatchmiller) reported

    @DropboxSupport thanks I just need an answer quickly as this file needs to be shared urgently for my business-- I've never had ANY technical issues with Dropbox before and I'm shocked how hard it is to get actual tech support

  • robhatchmiller Rob Hatch-Miller (@robhatchmiller) reported

    @DropboxSupport I've been waiting 24 hours to get an answer about a @Dropbox sync issue that was escalated to the advanced team

  • kenziroze Stripper Goddess (@kenziroze) reported

    MY DROPBOX IS FINALLY WORKING... videos are finally being uploaded after days of not working. I’m so irritated. I need a laptop because doing school work and adult work all on my phone is not cutting it. I bust my ass. I write essays on my god damn phone.

  • DonP Don Pizarro (@DonP) reported

    @Wiswell @hottestsingles I've actually narrowed myself down to Teh Googles, and leveraging its "save offline" capabilities on my devices. And TBH, it's because I resented Dropbox for dropping support for the linux disk encryption that 95% of Ubuntu users use. ...yeah, it'll F me one day.

  • CorvinGreene Corvin Greene (they/them) (@CorvinGreene) reported

    @Wiswell Dropbox has never let me down. I pay for the Premium service and back everything up there.

  • MatthewSSchwebe Matthew S Schweber (@MatthewSSchwebe) reported

    @ks_sasayan @SugarSync I'd recommend beginning every single update with an effusive apology to all of your customers, an explanation of why the outage has taken over 24 hours to rectify, and a plea to customers not cancel SugarSync and elect DropBox or comparable competitor instead.

  • Ele_xoxo20 AudyEle (@Ele_xoxo20) reported
