  • schneid3306 Sarah (@schneid3306) reported

    @BRUBromley My server, call my script to create the note, and then dropbox syncs it to a local editor. I also re-created my most used templates on the local apps.

  • LutzJC Jude Lutz (@LutzJC) reported

    @LizAlps @BenBlacker @VJBoyd @warnerbrostv Checked my dropbox link but looks like its not working. Will figure it out and send later when I get home. Thanks for all you’re doing!

  • the_kochalka James Kochalka (@the_kochalka) reported

    @_patrickkyle I just send 'em to dropbox. (Trying to send psd files would give me an error, but tiff works fine.)

  • koreaboolife JJ (@koreaboolife) reported

    Next uni rant - the module leader for my dissertation module is on holiday with poor internet connection till the 29th which is the deadline date. This wouldn't be an issue if the dropbox for submission was online

  • ellie_boulder Ca$h-$linging $lasher (@ellie_boulder) reported

    A couple people have told me they are having issues with MV. If you’re having trouble with ManyVids, tip the amount on FanCentro and I’ll send you the DropBox links. DM proof of purchase and your username.

  • AndreaGacs Andrea Gacs (@AndreaGacs) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yes. I had to close the app. When re-opened I found a camera access authorization which solved the problem.

    Logitech ServiceNow Keep Truckin Aurora Zoox Coursera GV Rhumbix Uber Okta Nuro 23andMe Stitch Fix Udemy Quantcast Lyft Structure Capital Affirm Symantec Pinterest Spark Capital Clever Box Dropbox LSVP It's very exciting. This is just the beginning.

  • terjanq terjanq (@terjanq) reported

    @d0nutptr Speaking of which I reported the issue to Dropbox recently that you have accepted and e.g. other big companies said it's not their fault but the browser bug... so it always depends on the perspective you are looking from.

  • GazelleMarc ⚪️⚫️Marc⚪️⚫️ (@GazelleMarc) reported

    @ElTedChuck @Dropbox using Dropbox itself is terrible !!! :-P nextcloud and make it by yourself it is more secure and you controll your data and it is not for dropbox

  • GuildAstrogator CJ (@GuildAstrogator) reported

    Gets me thinking how you guys limited Dropbox to 3 devices and how switching to Google Drive fixed that problem for me

  • kylebragger Kyle Bragger (@kylebragger) reported

    @DropboxSupport No errors, there’s just latency.

  • 2SpacesNoTabs Jens Krämer (@2SpacesNoTabs) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yeah I know that. The problem is that this works only with one file at a time (and the dialog looks like from 4 android versions earlier...)

  • 2SpacesNoTabs Jens Krämer (@2SpacesNoTabs) reported

    Just tried to share a couple photos from my #dropbox with another android app. Short of downloading and hunting them down in the file system this is just impossible. #fail #walledgarden

  • kuraselache Kuraselache (@kuraselache) reported

    @GamefreakDX Always back up! Dropbox and others make it easy to backup small but critical files. Especially with how old your computer is, don't want to lose files because of a hard drive issue. Or if your hosting platform decides to take a shit for dumb reasons.

  • iEddyG 𝚒𝙴𝚍𝚍𝚢𝙶 (@iEddyG) reported

    @draftsapp For a long time, I’ve had an action that prepends to a Dropbox file named “[[date|%Y-%m]].txt”. Until now, it has always worked to create the file if it didn’t already exist. Now I just get a red error bar in Drafts 5. If I create the file first, the action works OK…

  • evantravers Evan Travers (@evantravers) reported

    @left_pad I use @draftsapp on my iPhone to scratch down random thoughts. I have a custom action to append to a book note in my Dropbox, which I then later combine with any highlights from kindle and make a summary for myself to be searched later. Relatively new practice for me.

  • robini71 Robin Frost (@robini71) reported

    @DropboxSupport I did contact about this very issue about 2 years or so ago. Sadly it is not fixed.

  • m_herrmann Michael Herrmann (@m_herrmann) reported

    I used to have a very nice @IFTTT workflow: PDF invoices emailed to me were automatically added to my Dropbox. Makes accounting much easier. Unfortunately, IFTTT recently shut down their Gmail integration. I just spent 5 hours to implement this myself. Hopefully now it will last.

  • DRMacIver David R. MacIver (@DRMacIver) reported

    @flippacpub In this case I've figured out how to turn a word document on dropbox into a PDF and have just adopted a workflow of commenting on the PDF TBH. The problem with LibreOffice is that the page numbers won't line up and track changes will be broken.

  • tobesters toby eglesfield (@tobesters) reported

    @DropboxSupport I did some research and see you have a low rating as you don’t disclose. Maybe just my opinion but as a corporate, I think leveraging ethical issues is tricky when you don’t appear to have a stance on your own practices.

  • HuionTab Huion (@HuionTab) reported

    @zachmorganart 3) Purchase link where you bought this item; 4) A video that can show the problem clearly;(upload to dropbox or google driver would be preferred)

  • pulkinens lara (@pulkinens) reported

    it actually makes me happy to find books out of spaces so i can fix them; the library earns more money when you check out books or if you put them back in the dropbox; it gives librarians/volunteers things to do! support your local library!

  • colmmcsky Mike Prosser (@colmmcsky) reported

    I also took some time to find a fix for an issue I've had for a while, where some of my VR180 videos wouldn't stream properly from Dropbox. Using ffmpeg to copy the data to a new file (without reencoding or losing any quality, though the copied file was somehow smaller) fixed it.

  • squirmunk amber (@squirmunk) reported

    @AtherJammoa @KC8PNL I believe so. But for storing things just for me I prefer a Dropbox because it seems to sync things where as Google Drive seems to have issues. I have not had a problem sharing links with people and I have not tried sharing folders with people.

  • dannyddp82 Daniel Murphy (@dannyddp82) reported

    @1Password will do. I actually think the issue is to do with Dropbox having and issue on my machine., but we will see. Thanks.

  • MissRogueFlame Rogue 🔥 (@MissRogueFlame) reported

    @SassehPandah @KisaPrime I actually save everything down to my Dropbox and then export them to IG or where ever I want them

  • robini71 Robin Frost (@robini71) reported

    Oh boy I see @DropBox @DropboxSupport hasn't fixed the issue preventing the #Blind from activating account menu on their web page. As such I can't update payment info. #A11Y #Accessibility fail

  • lubna_aisha Lubna burki (@lubna_aisha) reported

    @sadaat55 @Dropbox Sir point 3 is the main problem here. 🙄

  • EboniAdams Eboni Adams (@EboniAdams) reported

    @DropboxSupport I have been trying for 20minutes to cancel before my trial ends. When I press cancel I get an Error message. Shame on you!! If you charge me $199 I will never use you service again!! And I will share my experience with my friends and colleagues

  • Drskrath srikanta (@Drskrath) reported

    @Dropbox Major problem is people don't go out of the comfort zone.

  • tigrayrocks Vicki Andrada (@tigrayrocks) reported

    @angelgirl1976 I am too much of an organizational person when it comes to my books. I don't mind adding them. But, that is why I want to zip all the audio books, because that way if I had to get them from dropbox if my computer went down or something I still could. @lynnskyi

  • AlexiosAsText Alexios Rosario-Moore (@AlexiosAsText) reported

    @timhaneyphd @JessicaCalarco @Dropbox IRB is down with Box and storage is unlimited. 🔥

  • Weltraumputze78 Weltraumputze (@Weltraumputze78) reported

    @gavinbarron @Azure For Dropbox and Google drive the clients could be instantiated directly in the core componend. Maybe for OneDrive i have to trigger it in the Ui Part of the application and pass the token down. Only problem with this would be currently unit testing.

  • glamrose22 laiba (@glamrose22) reported

    @MrMoeOthman The video wasn’t sending to someone earlier so I had to Dropbox it. If anyone else is having the same problem tell me and I’ll use Dropbox.

  • asemota Victor Asemota (@asemota) reported

    I expected the tweet to take me to a Dropbox link asking me to login or create an account.

  • Russell_Baylis Russell (@Russell_Baylis) reported

    @ara_p There isn’t, and it’s a pretty big buzz kill. It means that until Apple supports it, you need Dropbox for shared folders, or another solution. For me I’m ok with having a few shared folders in some other place (dbox) but for some people i could see it not working.

  • JuicyGrabs JuicyG (@JuicyGrabs) reported

    @HealthWarrior1 @vinarmani @_unwriter You can scale just fine on-chain but Dropbox on the blockchain is something else entirely. You get to the point where you only have few v powerful nodes that can be easily shut down & Wikileaks data on the blockchain could be easily censored = an expensive centralized Dropbox.

  • realPlusInsta Insta 🦇 (@realPlusInsta) reported

    my dumb ass almost forgot that i could actually move my entire dropbox to my laptop's HDD oops guess storage space wont be a problem after all

  • sunzise AL #2011 (@sunzise) reported

    huuphong_nguyen Dropbox DropboxSupport evernote googledrive onedrive I’m seconds away from leaving too... don’t like that all my data is unencrypted on the Dropbox server, and their app constantly eats resources and makes my machine slow. Looking closely at Sync.

  • TheFilterGuy The Filter Guy (@TheFilterGuy) reported

    ... @finaldraftinc declined my request to get XML info. Pdf is fine but I have many unconverted .fdx files on Dropbox and it is frustrating to not be able to open them on my new phone. Every fdx option I've found on Play store is crap or broken. Invest in a simple viewer, please!

  • mfarmer85 Matt Farmer (@mfarmer85) reported

    @DropboxSupport Found the issue. It was the 3 device limit for free accounts. So I am now moving all files/folders to another provider where I can get this service.

  • DjTaxi4One Taxi 4One (@DjTaxi4One) reported

    @TokyoJosPreston I've put that and others on YouTube as the files are massive! If they get taken down I'll stick them on dropbox 👍🏼

  • spookyezra21 H. Ezra ✨ (@spookyezra21) reported

    Love that my laptop died and my Dropbox went down within 10 days of each other. I didn’t lose anything huge but there’s an ebook that’s currently inaccessible that I need

  • rsmck Ross McKillop (@rsmck) reported

    @littlerachyb @Dropbox The problem I have is it "just works" ... work have moved to Google File Stream which is really annoying in so many other ways. I tried @Box too but it was never as stable, and sharing things was more hassle than Dropbox ... just really annoying when sharing with standard users.

  • holdingontoers !!please see 📌 to help w/ saving top vids!! (@holdingontoers) reported

    @PMSHWT tysm <3 <3 and i know omg - i'm looking into that and trying to fix it, i might reupload it all to another dropbox acc to cut down on traffic

  • JoelThonar Joel Thonar (@JoelThonar) reported from Koekelberg, Bruxelles-Capitale

    @onedrive I believe 8-9 years, first as an alternative of Dropbox then I went Premium after nas crash (didn't realized disk1 was down disk2 passed away) 3 years ago.

  • fenixrti22 Fenixjedi (@fenixrti22) reported

    @JadeStamate No it's an outside server I've got stuff in Dropbox from 6 years ago

  • kamerlinlab Lynn Kamerlin (@kamerlinlab) reported

    I spent several days at war with my new Time Machine disk that kept hanging at random. After massive stress it turns out the culprit was the Dropbox smart sync. If you're having problems, exclude Dropbox from your backup, or selective sync instead. Hope I saved you some time...

  • ChrisStoney Christopher Stoney (@ChrisStoney) reported

    @jdklein33 @Microsoft @Dropbox Microsoft's login process is one of the worst things I've ever experienced. I cannot believe how bad they are with their UX. And Dropbox is far and away the best file share system out there. I hate Box. But gotta use what my clients request.

  • jdklein33 JD Klein (@jdklein33) reported

    @ChrisStoney @Microsoft requests you log in sometimes weekly, very broken workflow. Meanwhile, @Dropbox almost never requests login.

  • sshsheshea lindsey shea ♡ (@sshsheshea) reported

    dropbox is so freaking trash. it’s not user friendly and it’s slow as ****.

  • SpencerMcGurk Spencer McGurk (@SpencerMcGurk) reported

    @MollyJongFast I got a Dropbox error that said “corrupt file.”

  • luceric Luc-Eric Rousseau (@luceric) reported

    @realmoney @jimcramer No one under 60 years old uses Webex anymore, and large corporations (ex Autodesk) are moving to zoom This thing has wind in its sail. Now the problem is the same as Dropbox, which is to convert users to premium. (Zoom is free for meetings under 40 minutes)

  • GoodBinary Good Binary (@GoodBinary) reported

    @Dropbox I want to slow down to fail less quickly

  • NarataCards Kent Jensen (@NarataCards) reported

    @Dropbox Same problem for years. Dropbox starting up makes Mac unusable for 10-20 minutes. People have asked about this for years but are always told to start a support ticket. No improvement. Since Dropbox has ZERO RESPECT for paying customers I am now teaching myself Nextcloud.

  • macdarabutler macdarabutler (@macdarabutler) reported

    @matthewovington @Microsoft Google File Stream is pretty terrible too. @Dropbox is the only product that I trust.

  • tomravenscroft Master Prophet (@tomravenscroft) reported

    @merlinfulcher Copy should be in the body of the email, attached in a PDF and a word doc, with a selection of images attached, a link to a Dropbox (no login) with everything in, a link to a google drive, and all wetransfered (unexpiring). Anyone who doesn’t do that is lazy.

  • QuirkosSoftware Quirkos (@QuirkosSoftware) reported

    @williamsoo Not a problem... Just make sure Dropbox doesn't try and backup the file while you are saving to it!
