Dropbox Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@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.
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.

@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!
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).

@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.
@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
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
@marcoarment Well actually... Dropbox loses a lot of money. Turns out storing stuff online is a terrible business.
@sandofsky @RebeccaSlatkin Just nuke it and never look back. @Dropbox is terrible.

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

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.

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.
@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.
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
@photovirus @sandofsky Also, Dropbox drastically slows down the startup time on systems without SSD.
@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
@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
@marcoarment Due to this I've remove Dropbox from my launch-at-login app list. I couldn't believe I was doing it

@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.
@rdflynn @Dropbox Will look into the above. IT have disabled sync on the Mac client (because it has "issues").
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.
@DropboxSupport @umhishamb It's terrible - not sure why you did this
I'M LITERALLY THE WHOLE ******* CIRCIS RIGHT NOW. @Aneekekz PLEASE TAKE THE DROPBOX DOWN
@DropboxSupport smart sync not working with my work account on my new computer. Downloading all files from my work account. Asus UX305CA. Please help!
from Wicklow, Leinster
@AlineVidotto That software is terrible - i just bought Dropbox business account and never looked back !
@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
@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
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
@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...
@DropboxSupport Thanks! Must have been a fluke since I've been unable to reproduce the issue.
.@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 :'(
@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.
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
@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.
FOR 1. SO MAD IM BURNIN A CD IN 2019 BUT ITS THE NEW NIP I ONLY GOT ON MY DROPBOX (THATS WHY IM TRYNA BURN IT) FOR 2 IM SO PISSED ITS NOT BURNIN IM DOWN TO FIGHT THE TONGAN CRIP THAT WENT VIRAL TODAY JUST TO WHOOP ME.

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!
i wonder when the day will come when a giant cloud server like dropbox or icloud just fails and deletes everyones data.
@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.
@JonathanMosen @Dropbox Yeah it's terrible, so I just found the folder, made a shortcut to it and whacked that on my desktop.
@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.
@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.
@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.
@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
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.
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 :/
@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."
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
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
@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.
@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.
@Dropbox Your new app is f'ing terrible. Dumping your product as a business user. Worst UX/UI ever.
@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.
@DropboxSupport The new app is terrible. If you force this on me I will cancel my subscription immediately.
@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.
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.
