  • emmadeputy Emma Deputy (@emmadeputy) reported

    My Dropbox from HS had me sign in today or else it would have deleted & I saw screenshots from all my ex’s & let me just tell ya. THEY TREATED ME LIKE TRASH. But Jake treats me like a freaking queen & loves me more than I ever thought possible. I think that’s the best glow up tbh

  • vphantom Stéphane Lavergne (@vphantom) reported

    @Dropbox To clarify, I'm not saying @insynchq is itself slow. I meant that Google Drive doesn't offer a Linux client (nobody understands why) and 3rd party clients like InSync are stuck with a file-by-file API with no delta encoding.

  • FreakyZoid Tony Gowland (@FreakyZoid) reported

    Don’t know what it is about the @Dropbox iOS app that kills my @virginmedia superhub’s WAN connection but it’s super annoying. Dropbox activity shouldn’t take down internet for my whole house.

  • Classick_AED N-Word Scissorhands 🌈🙍🏿‍♂️✂️🤲🏿 (@Classick_AED) reported

    They uploaded their asses into Dropbox and someone found the login 16 years later.

  • mnicole314 mnicole314 (@mnicole314) reported

    Hey y’all! Busy busy busy at work! Yuck! I’m really hoping some more fans decide to join my premium Dropbox soon! Might be shutting it down for good if things don’t pick up😕 I hope y’all are staying cool!

  • ShotBySig ShotBySig. (@ShotBySig) reported

    mf’s gonna get my dropbox shut down smh

  • flextoobig Big Flex (@flextoobig) reported

    $5 Dropbox Nudes.. women down bad y’all goin through it

  • shoobe01 Steven Hoober (@shoobe01) reported

    In this case, @Dropbox sorta synchs MacOS ._ files. Sorta. They synch them up, but never remove them. So I sometimes open a folder on the web or a PC to find THOUSANDS of them. By declaring not-their-problem, they have made a problem for me.

  • MateuszKubuszok Mateusz Kubuszok (@MateuszKubuszok) reported

    @volpegabriel87 @rabbitonweb Alternatively: write things down using Typora If you want "online" notebook then use Joplin with Dropbox (with Typora as external editor) Or whatever works for you

  • iamjayakumars Jayakumar Sadhasivam (@iamjayakumars) reported

    @Dropbox showing the syncing symbol, after the sync is completed. issue is #MacOScatalina, same issue after dropbox update.

  • restlesspix Jamie LeJeune (@restlesspix) reported

    @DougBenn @adamschoales Yeah, I wouldn’t trust Dropbox or Google Drive Never had a problem in iCloud Drive

  • easteraries Joel Smith (@easteraries) reported

    Dear @Dropbox I know I've sent you whingy tweets lately. But you're still sooooo much better than #Box. My company just had to switch to Box because Dropbox doesn't have servers in Australia, and it suuuuuuuucks! Please consider opening a server farm down under Love, Joel

  • johncolucci John Colucci (@johncolucci) reported

    They're asking me to do a trove of work to remedy an issue they can solve by 1. shutting down these accounts and/or removing these email addresses from the database and/or 2. forbidding anyone from the "XXXXX(dot)com domain" from opening a Dropbox account.

  • johncolucci John Colucci (@johncolucci) reported

    The problem: Someone is opening up, now at least 10 accounts on Dropbox using some email exchange at XXXXX(dot)com (again, I'm not posting the real domain). With that comes spam and marketing emails and "terms of service" reminders.

  • johncolucci John Colucci (@johncolucci) reported

    So, I'm not a @dropbox customer and I try not to complain on social media but since @drewhouston & team have chosen not to resolve a serious security issue, I think I have to talk about it publicly to help others.

  • findingmalo . (@findingmalo) reported

    I need to get the low down on Dropbox, got a notification today which said they've acquired Hello Sign. Strategic acquisitions are my drug.

  • MaceFN Code: Mace (@MaceFN) reported

    Whelp my dropbox wont let me sign in... soooooo tragic

  • RachelOpitz Rachel Opitz (@RachelOpitz) reported

    @electricarchaeo Also a problem with lidar and large rasters. Mount your google drive or dropbox storage first... store the data there.

  • jasemccarty Jase McCarty (@jasemccarty) reported

    @dropbox gotta love it when you give me the same BS run around for a dropbox client issue that has persisted for MONTHS.

  • ktruly hot girl squalor (@ktruly) reported

    @DropboxSupport believe it or not, i DID google this. yes, it seems that the problem is that it is syncing a large number of files - that i did not ask it to sync and that had not changed. i’ve applied selective sync and it’s still chugging away at 27k files that i have not selected.

  • DSHattem Dylan Hattem (@DSHattem) reported

    @dropbox @DropboxBusiness Once again, your support team is giving me answers that are unhelpful and contradictory to the solutions that were put in place during the exact same issue I've had before. #9546337.

  • ZacharyCosta14 Zachary Costa (@ZacharyCosta14) reported

    @GrayBryan102694 @instagram @Google @GooglePlay @Dropbox @tumblr @facebook thank You, @AlysonStoner For Helping @instagram To Fix Their App! #YourTheBest ! BREAKING NEWS: Instagram App Is Fixed Now! Its Safe To Go On.

  • cymplecy Simon Walters (@cymplecy) reported

    @biglesp -mm - my dropbox icon is showing an error - let me find another upload location for you

  • dr_KMcA Dr Karen McAuliffe (@dr_KMcA) reported

    @profmq @fdelond @SylvieDelacroix I just bit the bullet and paid for Dropbox pro. But same issues with ethics and funded projects there too😒

  • JohnMichaelNL 🎮John Michael🎮 (@JohnMichaelNL) reported

    I get an email saying my Dropbox may close soon, so I login and find all these old Blue Kaffee Web Radio files. This includes a remix of Yoshi's Island called "Exploding Butts" which I believe is just @Wils_OW yelling "butts" during the song. And I miss pre-FB social media so bad

  • Cotre2dC El Thundercat (@Cotre2dC) reported

    @Dropbox just came here to let you know that the usability of your platform is next to horrendous. Not to mention how slow it is nowadays.

  • FEEDFACEh 𝟶𝚡𝙵𝙴 𝟶𝚡𝙴𝙳 𝟶𝚡𝙵𝙰 𝟶𝚡𝙲𝙴🧣 (@FEEDFACEh) reported

    @DropboxSupport Thanks but I’d rather not go down this path. My wife’s Dropbox is experiencing the same behavior and I think everybody else as well. No app should deal with hundreds of threads, certainly not a files syncing app (if that’s still what Dropbox is).

  • Dagmeister Dagmeister (@Dagmeister) reported

    @DropboxSupport hi I emailed yesterday and I am still having problem.s with access to my account

  • jspahrsummers Justin Spahr-Summers (@jspahrsummers) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yes, the problem is that I want to sync a folder, along with all additions to it.

  • bigbrovar Othell Yarwyck (@bigbrovar) reported

    So firefox and dropbox are not available on the appstore. had to go hunt them down. I tried installing a clipboard manager which thankfully was available. But I got stuck trying to complete sign on to apple id..

  • florentdery Florent Dery (@florentdery) reported

    @Rhiannon_Kirton I could definitely use more training on this issue, but for now, Portable HD and Onedrive (we got a 1TB free with Uni). I always back-up on both, but big back-up once a month. otherwise, for documents, dropbox and sending myself e-mails.

  • eienoyume アンマリー ✿ (@eienoyume) reported

    trying to get my crap together but dropbox so slow ):

  • ttur Teemu Turpeinen (@ttur) reported

    @DropboxSupport Sorry to heart that. The problem is that as Dropbox is so versatile, it is used for a number of other things as well than just handling normal files (docs, images etc.). Filtering out files from Apps folder would suffice.

  • MACKabiVIPer42 PHILIP CRAWFORD (@MACKabiVIPer42) reported

    All those photos I lost almost month ago they seem to be coming back on my iPhone 5s now the only problem I got will they do repeat on my Dropbox which is Hell a lot of photos I keep saying: APPLE ICLOUD PHOTO ******* SUCKS they should stay w/JUST MUSIC

  • TheUntwit The Untwit (@TheUntwit) reported

    @MicrosoftHelps Hello, thanks. Yes, I’m using OneDrive with Office 365. The issue is happening right now. I created a symlink to OneDrive, and it did not sync the symbolic linked foder contents. I did the same for Dropbox, and it synced.

  • ibogost Ian Bogost (@ibogost) reported

    Dropbox, an app I rely on to silently synchronize files in the background without telling me, notifies me that it has a new app and I can "explore" its new "features." This is one of the problems with computing products: They get ruined through baroque additions.

  • iJoshGeezy 𝐉𝐨𝐬𝐡 (@iJoshGeezy) reported

    @Dropbox nvm I found the fix, they automatically change your preferences to open in "dropbox app" instead of the better Windows Explorer, so dumb

  • Vq03 vq (@Vq03) reported from Downey, California

    @DropboxSupport Not looking to cancel - just looking to drop down a level. Payment keeps failing over and over

  • jasonheimbaugh Jason R. Heimbaugh (@jasonheimbaugh) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yeah. Your team just emailed me again to tell me your inability to resolve the issue you created by billing me this morning was still my fault. Helpful!

  • LI_pvt_eye Bill@WRM (@LI_pvt_eye) reported

    @DropboxSupport hello My account has been closed. How can we fix. I dont know why other than credit card failure to process

  • ISeeYouMotel6 #Motel6 Killed My Dog 🐾 (@ISeeYouMotel6) reported

    3. $30 billion @USAA @USAA_help doesn't take dropbox records! Ya gotta be kidding me! I've sent these repeatedly, gotten some error reports and others seemed to go through, and have to tweet to get a response from adjustor. So, we are not way past due my deadline & ur playing...

  • nikkirobins0n Nikki Robinson (@nikkirobins0n) reported

    I came on twitter to see if anyone else was having the same dropbox problem, but but apparently twitter only uses dropbox to sell **** photos 😶

  • makethatatake Make That A Take (@makethatatake) reported

    When a band emails, I always tell them “come down to a show sometime”. We always listen to EVERY SINGLE DEMO we’re given. I can’t give them same guarantee with emails as there are so many of them. We’re going to have a DEMO DROPBOX at the basement going forward. Pop one in!

  • calhighway time traveling swiftie steve harrington (@calhighway) reported

    @EarnestScribblr they're never allowed to make a comment about lazy kids who never learned how to do anything for themselves if they don't sit down in font of dropbox how-to video first

  • MarcWillis66 Marc Willis (@MarcWillis66) reported

    @DropboxSupport I'm actually NOT getting an error. I log in via the email for the account, but it is not logging me to my personal not business.

  • theENIACmachine The ENIAC (@theENIACmachine) reported

    @DropboxSupport @drewhouston it’s hard to imagine something worse than CAPTCHA but you guys seem to have managed to implement such a thing: the animal tossing thing presented at Dropbox login today is HORRIBLE and UNINTUITIVE!!!

  • wronghat 🦴bones🦴👺 (@wronghat) reported

    there was a dropbox folder once but someone took it down. crumb of nutrition facts

  • mattone Matt Sullivan  (@mattone) reported

    @ynab thanks. I got onto my wife’s mac and authenticated the Dropbox request to share by adding MY credentials. I hope that won’t cause problems.

  • davidlkahn David Kahn (@davidlkahn) reported from Mamaroneck, New York

    @DropboxSupport When I attempt to click and drag the icon for the file I want to move to the folder, the file opens up. When click on the 3 dots to the right of the file name, my options are download, comment, delete, and version history. It seems like it would be obvious but it’s not working.

  • NTyrzi Tyrzi (@NTyrzi) reported

    @DropboxSupport You can click the image to enlarge it. I'm not going to show the full screen because it's confidential, but my issue is that you can misclick the report button (flag button) by accident because it's on top of the play button.

  • MrElliwood Filterfreier Forenbetreiber (ROOT-USER) (@MrElliwood) reported from Overath, Nordrhein-Westfalen

    @VessOnSecurity @ancarda @avast_antivirus It's service providers who should protect their users like emails being scanned for viruses on the server or Dropbox and the like preventing the sharing of known viruses. Add some kind of local ad blocking proxy to the mix and you're good to go.

  • dunne_kay Kay Dunne (@dunne_kay) reported

    My dropbox is not updating and I need to speak to someone or get help on this issue as soon as possible as I am going on holidays and need to be able to access my files 0879690029 kay Dunne

  • stevebanfield Steve Banfield (@stevebanfield) reported

    Dear @Lightroom please talk to @Dropbox, @googledrive, @onedrive or @Box to learn how to make multi-device file sync for images work in 2019. You're late to the party and it is causing photographers a lot of pain reverse engineering your sync issues.

  • yugi2908 tatsuya shidou (@yugi2908) reported

    @DropboxSupport Hello, I'm having a problem when sharing a file pdf and seeing restricted content on them

  • zoestanleyarts ZoeStanleyArts (Stream Commissions AUG 19-23) (@zoestanleyarts) reported

    @PJMan586 Unfortunately I don't have any irl knick knack doll pics. However, there is a public dropbox archive with a bunch different knick knack art and a discord server that I know about.

  • theantifunk ForMyEntertainment (@theantifunk) reported

    @CadianShock @PVasiljevic I use Dropbox on my PC but it is shutdown until I use it and I only use it as a mailbox between one PC and another. Open it stick in the file and shut it back down.

  • amrealtor76 Aram Manukyan (@amrealtor76) reported

    @limneos I have a problem with syncing dropbox for some reason it doesn’t work tough linked to my dropbox successfuly. Pls advice

  • BTSTXTMarvel misael // PROD. SUGA (@BTSTXTMarvel) reported

    @PopFactsNew Use Grabfrom . Com and it says put YouTube link, then download then it says save to Dropbox and then sign in using google

  • slaquaodonnell Simone Laqua-O’Donnell (@slaquaodonnell) reported

    @adrian_powney Thanks! I use Dropbox (+ 2 external hard drives in 2 locations - backup overkill!) but there the photos-tab doesnt appear anymore. No idea why! So I follow a web link + then I can see my pics BUT then I'm unable to put them into folders. Seems to be an issue for more people.

  • gustojunk Gustavo Fontana (@gustojunk) reported from Dracut, Massachusetts

    @quigdes @Dropbox CAD viewers are a small market, kind of a waste of time. That’s why no one is making money there. But if they had built something better than Basecamp that would have been cool. Not what they built, it’s so terrible I can’t even explain how they can be so out of touch.
