  • markruby_ Mark Ruby (@markruby_) reported

    dropbox is trying to take me out. they said they will delete all my data in 60 days if i dont sign in. that would be so unhealthy for me. i put every picture of my kid from her birth and videos and everything of her life until she was 6 on it thats way too much dont do that

  • behindthebid Behind The Bid (@behindthebid) reported

    Dropbox $DBX earnings look fine + upgrade. No one can figure out why it's down. Must have said something nasty on the conference call.

  • MrSwats Ferran Jovell [HIRE ME] (@MrSwats) reported

    @kierancutting @simonoxfphys I started off with Dropbox but I didn't want the building files or even the PDF synced because it could have problems when I switched computers.

  • JackBarrowUK Jack Barrow (@JackBarrowUK) reported

    Uninstalling #Dropbox then deleting the Dropbox folder, always a nervewracking experience. It's never been a problem, & I have backups (all my files are on other PCs) but to press delete on all my data is scary no matter what. Ultimately we are irrational beings #InSatNavWeTrust

  • Ian_norvic Ian Billings (@Ian_norvic) reported

    @IlkleySuzie Problem if you want to use them digitally. I’m guessing you don’t want prints from Tesco’s. TV or DVD player may show them. Guess you need a usb stick or have them put on Dropbox, Imgur, Flickr etc.

  • KerryNeverReady kerrycita (@KerryNeverReady) reported

    Just found my Dropbox from 6 years ago and man oh man idk what makes me the most sad: how my body looked ****** gr8 and I know I hated it then, the good friendships I had, or all the glass pieces I’ve broken since then :,(

  • wpmedic WordPress Medic (@wpmedic) reported

    @thestylesplash Glad to hear it's back up. If you're not backing up ur site to external storage like Dropbox or Google Drive, it might be a good idea to set it up now. Having backups off site ensures u don't lose ur website if something fails or u can move to new host while site is down.

  • ErisMeatPuppet Aerial Gnostic Packets (@ErisMeatPuppet) reported

    @DropboxSupport PDFs, for the record. After reloading just now, there appears to have been some changes on your end which fixed the issue so I can't get screenshots

  • ombudsman4truth Ombudsman4Truth (@ombudsman4truth) reported

    @sethjlevy She'd have to know and approve of it. That's possible, that she used an unsecured server as a Dropbox account. But I haven't seen that evidence. That's what it would take though

  • praeclarum Frank A. Krueger (@praeclarum) reported

    @JosuGoi1 @ID_AA_Carmack Ouch! I work in .NET and temporary files are written to the project folder. It’s really rough on Dropbox but somehow I’ve managed to avoid any major problems (I get conflicts a couple times a year)

  • shirazi_en Seyed Y. (@shirazi_en) reported

    @overleaf First tasks: Linking my @overleaf account to @dropbox, in case this issue happens again. 2nd task: keep dropbox synced with my PC, if the #internet goes down 😁

  • BRichXXX DickDrainers XxX (@BRichXXX) reported

    @aprildawnmodel @ManyVids I use dropbox for large file transfers. Google drive encodes too slow. Its like 9.99 a month for the large storage.

  • Cheap_Zen Ray Underberg (@Cheap_Zen) reported

    @DropboxSupport HELP! Dropbox stopped working on my phone. Shut down, restarted phone, uninstalled and reinstalled Dropbox on phone, still upon launch it just says"unfortunately dropbox has stopped". I still have dropbox on my computer (synced) and via the internet ok...help!

  • TjR_0 Tinker (@TjR_0) reported from Stephenville, Texas

    What i do have a problem with is this: when i did follow you and have you added on snapchat, every-time i saw something you posted, it was always "Dm Me AbOuT mY pReMiUm/DrOpBoX". I understand hard times or whatever and doing for for a little while to get yourself out of a bind

  • manuelcortez00 Manuel Cortez (@manuelcortez00) reported

    @prihozhanin2007 hello, apparently the link has been turned off. Dropbox gives a 429 error.

  • anniefryman fry (@anniefryman) reported

    i haven’t used Dropbox in years, and logged in to reactivate it today so that it wouldn’t automatically shut down so many GB of old architecture drawings, renderings, sketches, model photography... whoosh. it’s like finding my diary from 5 years ago and reading everything inside

  • dkos07 Danielle Kosecki (@dkos07) reported

    why is dropbox so terrible

  • nikitavoloboev Nikita Voloboev (@nikitavoloboev) reported

    @ulyssesapp Can you please fix the issue of Ulysses renaming of lowercased single word external files in Dropbox being forcefully uppercased on any change made to them. Makes Ulysses unusable for people that prefer to lowercase files. Thank you.

  • unorthodox201 unorthodox 201 (@unorthodox201) reported

    @GamingCareers just seen your YouTube video ( how to make your blue snowball sound like a professional mic) The one problem I have is trying to open the file with your settings it looks like I don't have a program for it any recommendations on a windows 10 laptop I have dropbox

  • MissLadrillos Gaby (@MissLadrillos) reported

    @DropboxSupport Thanks, you have an answer, I couldn´t fix it :(

  • laaaaaaaaani Lani (@laaaaaaaaani) reported

    OFFLINE BACKUPS!! not on google drive, not in iCloud, not in Dropbox, not on someone else's server. please please please!!!

  • madisonguest Madison Guest (@madisonguest) reported

    @DropboxSupport Just want to let you know I’ve still not resolved this issue. Your support staff is a joke.

  • jimmylittle jimmy (@jimmylittle) reported

    @arlenparsa I wouldn’t prioritize free. I pay $10/mo for 2TB of iCloud and have had zero issues in years. Free will always go away or not be private. That being said, Google’s free tier is 15GB, and I’ve racked up enough referrals to have 12GB of Dropbox for free. (1 / 2)

  • NickatFP Nick (@NickatFP) reported

    Getting the email "We noticed a sign in to your Dropbox, please confirm that was you" after you are already signed and have access to everything is the absolute worst additional security measure I can think of

  • MegaMimz0r Mim@SCREAMToning (@MegaMimz0r) reported

    @fruchtdrop Yes exactly! The 12.9 one! Since it's the only Apple Product I own, the transfer between my normal PC and the drawing app works with Dropbox and is sadly kind of slow, but I really don't mind too much! The positive aspects are way more!

  • Schwartziris Schwartziris (@Schwartziris) reported

    I think the rollout was unethical and many of those who haven’t opted out are just unaware or unable to do so. Unfortunately the “important reform” was in itself flawed as the program is basically a Dropbox of data and will likely still have a lot of problems for those who are in

  • Startur Artur Surov (@Startur) reported

    @DropboxSupport I would rather have you fix the technical glitch instead of me doing the unnecessary step you suggest. It's not like I must use Dropbox.

  • ThisIsHiccups Hiccups (@ThisIsHiccups) reported

    Plans for today: - work on website (again lol) - work on twitch overlay for my twitch - delete a crap load of files off of me iPad and Dropbox - upload to dA, fA etc. - add "notes" and "doodles" section to my discord server

  • KangaSales Kanga Products (@KangaSales) reported

    @m1kta_qrp @m1bxf This is not unique and my daughter and her friends have had Harddrive issues or had same stolen. Even when told and shown things like Dropbox, OneDrive etc. And very sadly I’m sure they will not be the last.

  • lunaticmara Mara (@lunaticmara) reported

    The damage is pretty minimal, considering that I haven't used Dropbox actively for 2 years or so. It only had stuff like osu!replays, game screenshots, terrible website designs and random gifs and webms.

  • jeffdl Jeff De Luca (@jeffdl) reported

    @gavinb @Dropbox No kidding. We are forced to use Dropbox at the moment. Shocked how slow and clunky it is (iOS).

  • denny_jd Jd (@denny_jd) reported

    @Dropbox Paper Apps not working on my iOS. Loading all the time. Need advice. Thanks

  • tallinzen Tal Linzen (@tallinzen) reported

    .@Dropbox hasn't been syncing properly on my laptop for more than a week now. So far only slow canned responses from @DropboxSupport. No evidence that anyone has actually looked into the issue.

  • 9021drone beverlyhillsaerials (@9021drone) reported

    😡😡 Just want to make sure everyone knows, I am still having issues with the new DROPBOX business, ive spoken to multiple customer service who give me canned responses and no one can help me. STAY AWAY EVERYONE @DropboxSupport

  • GORDYLAND gordy (@GORDYLAND) reported

    @datto i don't know what MSP means but there's nothing you can do to help me besides just becoming a more reliable service like dropbox. in a period of 6-9 months i've lost countless files, had so many errors for saving to the desktop client. it's clunky and a ripoff. i don't trust it.

  • Oyefelaphotos O Y È K À N K É JJ I (@Oyefelaphotos) reported

    @PRODEEGY Nothing you use a dropbox.. if they like they can re issue it for you(2years) or they may mail you to book an appointment with the consular for interview. They will sha want to know why you didn't travel with your Visa.

  • matthausk Matthäus Krzykowski (@matthausk) reported

    @lehrjulian It's probably what some of the thesis driven VCs think will happen. Eg Sequoia thought Wunderkinder + Dropbox are going to be the same company down the line

  • hgreyfeather Ԩєƶαα✨🗝️ (@hgreyfeather) reported

    @TheDeedleDee also proceate doesn't allow you to size down files when exporting afaik, so if you sketch on there yiu can save a png to your Dropbox to move onto your computer! 😄

  • SAP_Jarret Jarret Pazahanick (@SAP_Jarret) reported

    @jeroen_wielens @svenringling @ravenintell You don't need any certifications to do SAP Payroll or SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll the last time I checked which is why I let all 5 of my SAP/SF certifications expire. Since I have 135,000 SAP/SF documents in my "library" (dropbox) materials/info never an issue

  • xiuhosextapemp4 best friend, my lover (@xiuhosextapemp4) reported

    gotta fix a Ton but the dropbox file for sudi is at only 25k ;;; an end it nears

  • AyoSandee - (@AyoSandee) reported

    @DropboxSupport hello, i am having trouble logging in. once I click "sign in" the button turns light blue and the page does not load.

  • drizzleanddip Sam Linsell 🥑🍋 (@drizzleanddip) reported

    @onanotherplane I must start doing that. Only problem, in order to upload to Dropbox, it has to mirror onto your computer (not big enough). I havent been successful at selective syncing

  • alissa914 Lauren "Hindsight is 2020: Vote Democrat" (@alissa914) reported

    @bzamayo Amazon Drive did the same thing. I had my iTunes library on Amazon Drive. When I moved all the files off of it, iTunes was missing dozens of videos and music. Never had this problem with @Dropbox.

  • Elinor_Carmi 👾 Pinkeee 🌌 (@Elinor_Carmi) reported

    @NicholasAJohn I agree but Dropbox have serious privacy issues so if your research has sensitive material this is a big problem. I save mine on 2 usb sticka and it's been working well so far.

    @kingincity @helpmeunifi Same issue. Dropbox integration isn't working either. I talked to their online support and they were anything but useful.

  • liamnickerson Liam Nickerson (@liamnickerson) reported

    @DropboxSupport Wound up uninstalling and deleting the DB folder - seems to have solved the problem, it just hung on 'moving' the folder, but didn't seem to burn CPU, just never finished...

  • MarielaLlovera Mariela Llovera (@MarielaLlovera) reported

    @wesupportlee @Dropbox Drive is not working in Venezuela due dictatorship interference with the internet connection. We are facing problems with gmail, youtube and other @google services. My @dropbox account its working ok now, finally.

  • daniel_e_cook Daniel Cook (@daniel_e_cook) reported

    @zamanian_ @boxsupport I had the same issue. Dropbox works waaay better.

  • nikree erin nicole (@nikree) reported

    I'm just bucked up bc I really thought I deleted this screenshot but I just found it when I was cleaning out my Dropbox bc of storage issues lol

  • echristopherson liberal moonboots (@echristopherson) reported

    @DropboxSupport I see. I was hoping my uBlock install was the one blocking it, but apparently not; it's probably organization-wide. I can't say this CAPTCHA impl is fun at all. Please put something on your site at least telling people that this may be an issue for them.

  • echoechoR Dr. Echo Rivera (@echoechoR) reported

    OneDrive is the absolute worst. Dropbox just...worked. From minute 1. No problems whatsoever. OneDrive has missing folders and constantly spits back syncing errors. It hasn’t worked properly for me, ever. Why 👏🏻 can’t 👏🏻 things 👏🏻 JUST 👏🏻 WORK 👏🏻

  • vnmxceo Sir Black Boss (18+) (@vnmxceo) reported

    @myliemoore Ahh. I’d do the reverse—Dropbox for smaller files; WeTransfer for the big ones. WT Plus will solve your problems though.

  • vnmxceo Sir Black Boss (18+) (@vnmxceo) reported

    @myliemoore I can see why you’re having issues. I assume it’s an MTS or MOV file. If your processor is weak or if you have a weak connection, Dropbox for whatever reason is utter shit. I suggest WeTransfer to send files over 2 GB. Sign up for Plus. It’s $12/month but it is better.

  • ctisdal5 Carey Tisdal (@ctisdal5) reported

    @Dropbox @tla0 My Webroot program says my Dropbox has a handle leak and that I should report it to you. Since I can not find how to do that within Dropbox, which also seems an issue, I am tweeting it to you.

  • shoobe01 Steven Hoober (@shoobe01) reported

    @DropboxSupport The “most likely” is a serious issue. Why not have the UI be clear. Turns out it’s that you took the windows approach of letting us peek into ZIP files, but do not allow individual extraction. Had to back out, download the whole archive instead. Confusing.

  • madisonguest Madison Guest (@madisonguest) reported

    @DropboxSupport I obviously clicked that multiple times and every time it was unhelpful or redirected me to sign in. I will dm you my email
