  • JonathanADaley Jon Daley (@JonathanADaley) reported

    While working on my app project in Swift Playgrounds I realized there’s no source control. None! So I’m resorting to backing up the project periodically. Trouble is, I can’t share the Playground file directly to the Dropbox app, b/c of an unknown error… Shortcuts to the rescue!

  • doctajeep doctor jeep (@doctajeep) reported

    ultimately for the best though, i remember playing with a uk dj who lost his usb and it was no issue at all because he had his entire rekordbox collection on dropbox and could just re download it to a stick he bought that same night. legendary pro maneuver

  • lukeclaibourne Luke Claibourne Nelson (@lukeclaibourne) reported

    Getting Error 404 messages on all @dropbox shared links. @DropboxSupport help me out?

  • Bobottah ThatOtt (@Bobottah) reported

    @ComfortFoodVG Oh Dropbox has a max traffic limit and most likely you tripped it. I've had it happen before and they make it sound super ominous. just shuts it down for a few days.

  • _ratmann_ r a t m a n n 🌳 (@_ratmann_) reported

    @AvolitesLtd @AvolitesLtd I can’t download the update, it gets to 80% and then stops, i’ve tried this using different networks and computers. are you having any issues with the server? or maybe someone can share me a dropbox link 🙏🏼

  • rootbeerphoto JasonFrostPhoto (@rootbeerphoto) reported

    Uploading to iCloud is sooooooooooooo damn slow. Dropbox beats it by a factor of ten. Not kidding. Same amount of photos, same size.  should be embarrassed about this.

  • TrechNex Bobby Moss (@TrechNex) reported

    The problem I encounter is that backgrounded apps on GNOME 3.x don't quite work that way. You end up with weird behaviour like Dropbox telling you it's syncing in a notification you can dismiss, and there's no GUI icon on the app launcher to check status or change settings.

  • unashamedusa Duke Santoski (@unashamedusa) reported

    @DropboxSupport Read it. So you're saying your policy is to shut your customers' business interactions down without warning, as if they're offenders who knowingly violated a (complicated) rule, which I did not. Horrible way to conduct business. We will be looking for an alternative to @Dropbox.

    @Steven_2480 Funny story... When working at family video in big rapids, one time the big chill soundtrack on CD (which did not belong to the store) came in through the dropbox in like a half broken generic CD case & we treated that thing like a national treasure, protected it at all costs 💀

  • shg shg (@shg) reported

    @Dropbox If all files are in local and no online-only files, then I can completely safely upgrade to macOS 12.3 without any precautions at all? Or is there any issues with local only use too?

  • ravikumarballa ravikumar (@ravikumarballa) reported

    @USAndIndia Dear Embassy, we have been trying to book dropbox appointments for summer. It has been 3 years since we have visited India due to this pandemic. Either there are no appointments or if there are appointments, we are getting errors while booking.

  • SplatoonExposed Splatoon Animators Exposed (@SplatoonExposed) reported

    LunaSakura154 EXPOSED for having a Discord server (evidence included on dropbox)

  • dekrazee1 Knight Rai Raiosaurus (@dekrazee1) reported

    Does Dropbox know that none of it's emails render correctly in Gmail? Not even invoice and support emails? They're all broken and I basically have to be a code breaker to make sense of them. Can someone please TELL THEM??

  • kirwinia The Waveform Conglomerate (Mx. Juniper System) (@kirwinia) reported

    @ComfortFoodVG It's definitely gone. Dropbox has systems that large companies can use to get stuff taken down :/

  • Red99806561 Red (@Red99806561) reported

    @urbestfairytale Don’t fall for this OF. She barely posts, lies about selling customs, and when she does it’s the same played out bs. Just buy her Dropbox and save yourself the trouble.

  • BenDukes Ben Dukes (@BenDukes) reported

    @Apple - Why does icloud syncing seem so incredibly slow? Left my phone on Wifi for nearly two hours, with 7 short (sub 3-min) videos to sync... and when I came back, only 3 had. For comparison, I am now uploading them to dropbox instead, and 4 have uploaded in 5 mins.

  • Nathan_Nazeck Nathan Nazeck (@Nathan_Nazeck) reported

    @JasonMorrow270 Hmm, you can do that with Drive, not sure about Dropbox. I have 500 in my laptop and never have trouble but I don't work off it and don't even let programs put render files on it. Fcpx is notorious for chewing up internal space

  • martin_parris Martin Parris (@martin_parris) reported

    Thought I'd give Dropbox another go after leaving a few years back due to syncing issues. Master backup has stalled at just over 10k files left to backup and hasn't moved for the last 3 days. Going well so far.

  • SapphireSky876 SapphireSky (@SapphireSky876) reported

    @idguy .If an Adobe file is created on a Mac and uploaded to Dropbox, then downloaded on to a PC, and then transferred to another Mac, will there be an issue with the file when it gets to the Mac? The file won’t be opened while in transit via the PC

  • Reviewer_No_2 Doc. Meehan (@Reviewer_No_2) reported

    @cgl_119 It is a nightmare, esp working at home with little ones... Having to chase your phone down to read email, then again to access Zoom, then again to see schedules, then Dropbox. It's a cluster ****.

  • mypoortiredsoul The Family Soup Company (@mypoortiredsoul) reported

    @jamila_allidina Can't really cut it up. The whole thing is 75 minutes long. It's like sending a feature length film! Trying a different option through Dropbox. Cross your fingers for me! I have run into so many tech issues getting this done and just need to clear the last hurdle to share it!

  • nikicheong Dr. Niki Cheong (@nikicheong) reported

    @VivAdram Yeah, I'm only on Dropbox so the mah fun is not an issue :) And I don't need more space - I'm just trying to see how I can cut my costs! Thanks though!

  • cormacrelf Cormac (@cormacrelf) reported

    @Nrg8000 Dropbox links are rate limited so even if it’s not a public/private thing you’ll find them going down once they get popular. Better to pick another image host. There are a lot of them and I don’t have a recommendation, sorry.

  • atomius0 atomius (@atomius0) reported

    @ComfortFoodVG Looks like it's already been taken down from dropbox? I'm getting a 404 error.

  • pedantic_grue 🇺🇦Pedantic Grue🇺🇦 (@pedantic_grue) reported

    @KambryEllis @CatRScott @MsAnnaBoyle At this point, everyone should have their documents folder connected to DropBox or OneDrive. I do this and do weekly full backups to an external drive. I highly doubt Word files would get corrupted unless it was a hardware or virus issue.

  • d_sabate David Sabaté🎗 (@d_sabate) reported

    @DropboxSupport @joelrelova Same here, running ubuntu 20.04. Even the dropbox site has been down with a "HTTP ERROR 503"

  • nicosttweets Nicole St. Denis (@nicosttweets) reported

    Thank Jebus for Dropbox 🙃 This grant is already a week late, btw, which is not my fault but still very much my problem…

  • ComfortFoodVG Comfort Food Video Games (@ComfortFoodVG) reported

    Update: I’m aware the Dropbox link doesn’t work now. I don’t know if it’s traffic or Nintendo got at that too but working on a fix.

  • crockedknees Andrew 🇺🇦 (@crockedknees) reported

    @JamesTurner37 @Familoo The problem is egress is integrated in to LA and Cafcass case management systems. It’s not integrated in to most lawyer’s systems and I suspect CJSM would be the same. I don’t see why encryption by sending a link to access secure documents (like Dropbox) isn’t good enough.

  • viewsbymason Views By Mason (@viewsbymason) reported

    @BeanZoomy @appleinsider No problem. Technically you can if you sign into your Dropbox account via a web browser. All your files would be in the cloud there. And you can chose which files you want to download or view, etc.
