    Dropbox web won't load on chrome Mojave. Glad I signed up for the free professional trial. Seems like it's been a issue for over a month. Not sure why anyone would pay for that. @Dropbox @DropboxSupport

    Got on the computer to write down an idea for a line of dialogue. Ended up organizing my entire Google Drive and Dropbox but completely forgot my idea 😅😅😅

    Henrik Korsgaard (@heenrik) reported

    @PernilleT @bxchen My biggest issue, and I think this is common, is that I depend on being able to collaborate with people, and that forces me to maintain accounts in Google Drive and Dropbox (and ideally Facebook, but I insist on not going there) (1/2)

    @seannymurrs @bitport_io We remeber Boxopus was blocked by Dropbox. Google seems like it doesn’t mind right now, but these issues usually have a tipping point. We’d hate to ruin it for everybody.

    @palewire worth a shot! my backup security solution had been keeping one external at home and one at work, but now that work is AT home, that's vulnerable to fires/floods/thefts/EMPs, so hopefully I can solve my dropbox-no-longer-syncing problem AND that and feed two birds with one scone

    Neil Irwin (@nellyboot) reported

    @themodernmann That’s not working for me, but I’m not familiar with Dropbox (my failing). I’ve got to go to work now so I’ll email the bits I’ve managed to sync (within reason).

    Proxy change happens. This has been frustrating most of Windows 10 users as majority (almost 95%) users need to connect to the internet to access different websites and applications like Dropbox and so on. As a Windows admirer, i request upon you to check on this issue ASAP. 🙏🏾🤝

    @1Password Diagnostics sent 👍 I’ve also removed the old vault that was syncing through Dropbox. 1Password on my iPad appears to be working fine, the hanging issue only seems to be on the iPhone.

    I was backing up my work onto Dropbox and then decided to take a peek down memory lane. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out the password I used almost 10 years ago. 12/21/2008 the day 1 of the first stories I created was born. The time has flown by. #writerscommunity 1/4

    I miss drawing digitally on Autodesk Sketchbook on my laptop. Having to use my mom's laptop because of the inconsistent quality of my Internet or my lack of Dropbox to put my stash of lewd stuff I **** to, or even my low storage issues really sucks sometimes.

  • Griffon0129
    Ryan Brown ☣ (@Griffon0129) reported

    for a while I had 20GB extra with dropbox but only used 5.7GB, however they said my extra 20GB expires in January, after deleting everything not necessary I shrank it down to 4.7GB, after deleting even more all I could do was 3.2GB so I figured it was time to switch

  • dwds_
    Derek Dadian-Smith (@dwds_) reported

    @visagermusic Sorry, I don't think Dropbox will let you host web files. If you don't have a web server, probably the best option is to embed a YouTube or Soundcloud. It will autoplay for some, and others will have to click play. (For me it autoplayed in Firefox but not Chrome) 🎶

  • Kavinay
    Kavinay Kishor (@Kavinay) reported

    @Subhedgehog It does creep me out to use dropbox. Not because I'm storing anything secret, but just the idea that some server admin somewhere is seeing how banal my stuff is in plaintext...

  • Kavinay
    Kavinay Kishor (@Kavinay) reported

    @Subhedgehog That being said. I'm still the weirdo who uses a combo of Evernote and Dropbox after wasting untold hours on trying to maintain my own franken-wiki-file-server. You know you're old when you just go vendor supported.

  • oryozema
    Danny A. Reyes (@oryozema) reported

    @deadlypeachart Any size is fine if you have a dropbox/google drive set up. Just back up finished/ old stuff on there and your computer. Even with out a cloud service, 64 is still pretty good, you'd have to put in a lot of extra junk to make it a problem.

  • ctroftgruben
    Chad Troftgruben (@ctroftgruben) reported

    @pluralsight @yenrikrenmimbi Yes, I have mentioned this before. I have a dropbox link ready to go just in case any student needs it. I believe the issue was due to file size but it’s really discouraging that after two years this still hasn’t been addressed or fixed.

    @olagon All backup files are encrypted with the login password (v4 or below) or account password(v5) in use when the backup file was created. In order to restore from a backup file, you'll need to know it's password. Note that Dropbox backups are encrypted with the cloud sync psw

    Thanks to everyone who pointed out that the AART live show link is no longer working. This is an issue with Dropbox, so we're working on another means of sharing the file. Stay tuned!

  • galtonsbox
    Ry Marcattilio (@galtonsbox) reported

    @Claire_L_Jones @TurnitinStatus TurnItIn is baked right into our Brightspace/D2L, so when students upload a paper to the course dropbox it gets auto checked. If TII goes down you can still see problem papers. I suppose this only matters if you only use it for plag detection. Never used their grademark stuff.

    @DropboxSupport This slow uploading happens on mine & my wife’s iPhone. I’m on iOS 12.1... tried uninstalling and reinstalling the DP app... still doing it!! I also tried ‘connect to computer’, followed the steps with the QR code but cos’ I already had the desktop app installed, it did nothing!

    Marek ✈ (@super_marek) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox Yes, I'm using a file system which supports extended attributes for files, it has been working without any issues for years, it stopped working now with the latest update. Your support is useless and linked page does not explain why you only accept inferior ext4 file system.

    Tom Long (@tomlongphd) reported

    @tropy Thank you! I had been poking around the forum and will continue to do so. I saw that several people had problems either with OneDrive/DropBox or with file paths, but I couldn't find an exact solution. Will keep looking!

    @DropboxSupport I do not even get to a point were i can enter credentials - so that email you requesting is useless as the software installation fails, not the login or something.

    @DropboxSupport Common to all are those file not found errors in eventviewer... wish there was a teamviewer support.. So i give the laptop back without resolving it and we migrate to working onedrive next week :(

  • Josh_Rollins
    Helpdesk-Headdesk (@Josh_Rollins) reported

    reading people's problems over at r/applehelp on reddit is depressing. People willing to pay Apple $1500 to replace a hard drive in a machine that cost $2000. People are stuck years behind on old OS that won't allow new dropbox/chrome version because new mac is too much $$$.

  • timoldenb
    ⓉⓄⓍⒾⒸ Wombat (@timoldenb) reported

    @DropboxSupport I will try installing on the same machine with another user Profile, maybe there is a problem.. I do not have the email address, and that would not help as support has to contact me, not him.

    @DropboxSupport - I have been running dropbox for many years on my Mac Mini. But if you days ago it stopped working and all my files are grayed out. I am now on macOS Mojave 10.14. #DropBox is a good tool, but the support pages are a complete mess, and I could not fix it

    Huge #dropbox #scam out in the wild focusing on 365 credentials, if you receive an official Dropbox invite to a shared doc from someone or corp you may know be extra vigilant- the file within may redirect you to a legacy 365 login site which is fake. #cybercrime #CyberSecurity

    @DropboxSupport Screw off. I don’t know if I need a business account and your business sales person WAS HORRIBLE on the phone and only had ONE MISSION to upgrade my account and she did not care about my problem or issues. No need to reply because YOUR COMPANY SUCKS BAD with a lack of service

    @atpfm @siracusa I keep my main *** repos on Dropbox. It’s not perfect but I think the convenience is worth the occasional issue. The biggest issue with node_modules is the CPU because Dropbox sucks there. But excluding that works OK. Also iCloud has a weird .nosync thing.

    Just got done troubleshooting a @Dropbox issue with adding comments to files. The comment sidebar wasn't appearing for this user and I couldn't find any option on the page to enable it. Turns out it was just hidden because she uses 150% zoom in her browser. Not great #a11y there.

    @popey In semi-recent LUP show notes, I have a link to a little hack that tricks Dropbox into thinking its always on an ext4 fs... Use at your own risk. But I think I am two or three weeks into using it without issue! Very handy way to buy time while I test out my replacement.
