Dropbox Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@steipete @mitsuhiko Briefly tried OneDrive and Box as well, both had terrible sync speeds (time till co-worker saw a file I put in a shared folder). Very happy with Dropbox tbh.
from Chennai, State of Tamil Nādu
@LabourMinistry @socialepfo Issue is, EPF RO in most places don't allow public/employers to go inside. Evn for any doc submission we're forced to put it in the dropbox which we don't even get acknowledgement.Visiting in person don't make things better. Already all docs submitted and pls do the needful.
@mitsuhiko Google Drive is terrible. 5x as much of a resource hog as Dropbox. Run.
@mitsuhiko I think it’s fine depending on scale. Needed Terabyte+ syncing and it broke down on me last year whereas dropbox handled it no problem. Drive’s Desktop client is also quite bad if you need that.
If I manage to find that dropbox for electronic waste today, I'll probably replace my tab battery next month. I need to dispose the battery since it looks kinda swollen already. Also if I managed to fix that thing, I probably can use it for a streamdeck lol
At this stage Dropbox can only really compete on service. But, their customer service is proving to be terrible. Such a shame. I imagine they have enterprise customers propping them up for now - but I expect MS, Google, Amazon and Apple to eat their lunch long term.
Just shut down Dropbox and all of my Adobe Apps. Ah, that feels good. Gimp is no Photoshop, but hey. It works. It's free. And the results look the same.
@mattcassinelli Not seeing anyone else mentioning this issue, but I have a Shortcut I’ve been using for a long time that uses the ‘Delete File’ action to clear out a CSV file before re-creating it in Dropbox. It’s stopped working since Monterey. Have you run in to this? Any fix?
@CoralineAda @splice In related news, I think I finally figured out how to un-bork a session when that problem crops up for me that forced us to fall back to Dropbox last time.
@DropboxSupport Thanks. See follow up tweet starting “Isolated”. The issue is with a private repository file. There’s work for @dropbox (better error message) and @github (share content not URL, I’m assuming?)
@koobs Thanks for the additional info. Just out of curiosity, when you use the native photo app on your phone for instance, and click on the option to "Save to Dropbox" from the share sheet, are you getting the same behavior, or does the issue only...1/2
@DropboxSupport @Dropbox A proper error message would be useful here, I'm guessing a permission issue, or 404 (from GitHub) if Dropbox is trying to fetch/parse/render the file in order to save it.
@DropboxSupport @Dropbox Isolated: The error is observed for a private repository, but not public repository. However, I am the repository owner, with complete access to the file being shared in the @GitHub mobile app. This may be due to Dropbox being passed a URL instead of the content (to save).
@koobs @Dropbox Have you had the chance to try clearing your Dropbox app cache, just to see if the issue persists then? If it's not much trouble, please send over a video recording, showing the exact steps you've taken before you get to that error message. Thanks in advance!
Imma take down the creators of Dropbox for making such a horrible file sharing site.
