    Jsyk the whole cov catholic thing isnt just a private/religious school problem. I went to a public school in MA that had boys (and girls tbh) exactly like the ones in the video. There was an ongoing crisis of boys sharing nudes (of underage girls) on a dropbox server.

  • ZylvanC Zylvan Celestion (@ZylvanC) reported

    @CorySeth88 Not if you ask me, I have the ssme problem. I have a whole dropbox thats just nudes and vids of me I dont want to delete.

  • psychopiperak Piper Plays (@psychopiperak) reported

    @iEmulators Dropbox sync is still broken, it crashes the app when trying to redownload files.

  • adamevers Adam Evers 📍 SFO/OAK (@adamevers) reported from Oakland, California

    @Dropbox y’all are killing my creative vibe rn with paper being down. Halp.

  • snigskitchen (((Snigdha))) (@snigskitchen) reported

    @LaFlaneuse2013 @bbcquestiontime @IsabelOakeshott I am surprised how Isabel has not had to account, in any way, for her behaviour towards Carole on the Andrew Marr show. Nor has she had to account for the "attic"/Dropbox issue.

  • BeautyRedefine2 Beauty Redefined (@BeautyRedefine2) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox I have done both the above steps and it’s not working 🙁 how to reset password. It’s important

  • shalinhnaik Dr Shalin Naik (@shalinhnaik) reported

    @JoeCursons Yeah, apparently it just wasn't saving. Happens apparently. Word issue, not Dropbox. Not in word autosave either

  • fankypanchu YURIF HELDENS ▶️ (@fankypanchu) reported from Honolulu County, Hawaii

    I’m uploading my personal files into our work Dropbox cuz email not working smh

  • jasondunn Jason Dunn (@jasondunn) reported

    @DropboxSupport A quick test shows that it may have fixed the problem - I’ll have to do more testing. Thanks! Every recent version of Android has the same battery optimization setting, so I’d say it’s the first thing to ask customers to check. I’m surprised there’s no app workaround though! 😞

  • ExposingSkeez3r Exposing Skeezers (@ExposingSkeez3r) reported

    Dropbox will be down soon

  • DarickR Darick Robertson (@DarickR) reported

    @Gnerphk Gotta say, took a 1/2 of going in circles to get to them, but the support @Dropbox team is excellent and resolved my problem quickly. This was an accidental clock running out on what would be a $750 plan that would kick in at the end of 30 day trial I didn't even want! Yikes!

  • brianknotts Brian Knotts (@brianknotts) reported

    @genemarks @Inc @40Billion_com It's not an all-or-nothing proposition, though. You can use an industry-specific hosted application, but still avoid putting your files into Dropbox or G Suite, or outsourcing your email hosting (which really makes diagnosing mail flow problems difficult).

  • Vusys Bryan Channon (@Vusys) reported

    @SlackHQ To give some praise, I quite like it on a white background and when it's at least 48px or so in size. But I have my dock super small and icons in Finder can be tiny. I ended up migrating away from Dropbox prompted by their utterly terrible redesign, but I'll never leave Slack.

  • matbrown012 Matthew Brown (@matbrown012) reported

    @Kaskia_ I have a story about one of my villian I really want to write down the road. I don't have Excel but I have a Dropbox loaded down lol.

  • GerzerSoftware Gerzer (@GerzerSoftware) reported

    The new @SlackHQ brand identity really is terrible. It gives @Dropbox’s redesign a run for its money, and Dropbox uses a font that’s literally called “Grotesk”! (I know that “grotesque” has a different meaning in the font world, but it’s still quite funny.) #SlackLogo

  • lizgaule Elizabeth Ann. (@lizgaule) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox I am upset that my request wasn’t even considered. His response was an immediate no. Dale is obviously just the messenger, so not a personal issue with him - an issue overall with how it was handled.

  • artisticmonkey ArtisticMonkeySalon (@artisticmonkey) reported

    @salonlite Please can some one help me with technical help I’m trying to export my data onto my dropbox but I’m having problems. Every time it exports I open the file on dropbox and the file is empty please can you advise how I can transfer all my clients details onto my dropbox

  • SusanRussam Susan Irvine Russam (@SusanRussam) reported

    @DropboxSupport can you help I spent time on chat and needed to reinstall dropbox on my pc to correct a problem need to sign in but can't remember my password and I get a too many attempts try later dialogue in red pop up

  • danieljneilson Daniel Neilson (@danieljneilson) reported

    There is no program ever created that causes so much problems in publishing than @Dropbox. Constantly punishing if you don’t have a premium account. I can’t bear it any more. #IMHO

  • ClaytonTLamb Clayton T. Lamb (@ClaytonTLamb) reported

    @_BrettJohnson So the info is all related to that barcode. It all syncs onto cloud. Dropbox or whatever you like. We use this to make sure there’s no keystroke errors for grizzly bear hair samples. We collect thousands a year. But still some manual input along the way obviously.

  • NewWorldNerds NewWorldNerds (@NewWorldNerds) reported

    @TeamYouTube Yes. I tried uploading it from my phone as well and it did the exact same thing. When I uploaded it to Dropbox it played the full 20 minutes so that's what made me believe it was a problem just with uploading onto YouTube.

  • AlanJay1 Alan Johnson (@AlanJay1) reported

    @kwuchu "App" is the problem. An app is something that requires time and attention. I think the future of B2C is things that give people their time and attention back, while making them feel more productive and secure. That's why I pay for Dropbox, Evernote and 1Password.

  • CharlesEllison Charles Ellison (@CharlesEllison) reported

    @DropboxSupport I tried in Firefox and Explorer. Also did the restart the laptop thing. Nothing worked. Finally came back to life late this afternoon and let me sign in.

  • BobbyWashTweet Bobby Washington (@BobbyWashTweet) reported

    @DropboxSupport help please... I'm trying to using the desktop on my iMac to sync a .dig file (77gb) and it goes all the way down to 2 minutes and then i get a red X... smaller files have no issue..

  • Haley_BBB Haley Brown (@Haley_BBB) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox Just found an email that said it was due to inactivity. However, it appears I’m still able to login so all might be okay.

  • JoshMock [ominous scratching noise] (@JoshMock) reported

    @zrail photo backup/sync is broken af. we have trust issues with iCloud, so our phones back up photos to Dropbox via its iOS app. then I manually move from Dropbox to macOS Photos, and that library auto-syncs to Google Photos. and I also use Arq to back everything up to S3.

  • kaseyedwards_ Kasey Edwards (@kaseyedwards_) reported

    @DropboxSupport Definitely emailed. They suggest I shut down the account rather than helping me get in. This isn’t possible. We need a new solution

  • Cinderellimouse Cinderellimouse (@Cinderellimouse) reported

    @trowicia Thanks for letting me know. I am aware there's an issue with my Dropbox links but it's going to take me a while before I can sort them all out. Sorry for the inconvenience! 💚

  • HarelDan HD (@HarelDan) reported

    @DougSRobertson @danc00ks0n @GeoPackage1 @Dropbox @shapefiIe I had an issue once with several pdf files endlessly duplicating themselves from different machines. Even after dropbox was full (pre paid, 25gb then). Had to pause all syncs, then delete from web. Though overall pretty good service.

  • DougSRobertson Douglas Robertson (@DougSRobertson) reported

    @danc00ks0n @HarelDan @GeoPackage1 @Dropbox @shapefiIe We’re having syncing issues with Dropbox, random delays on some files. Had no end of grief after uploadingnew Mac softest at Xmas. Slow stop spinning wheel for ever. Just what you want editing a 25k word report!

  • KirstenAlana Kirsten Alana 📷 ✈️ (@KirstenAlana) reported

    @photojack I do have them backed up. And I want to have less on my camera roll, I just always leave it to last to sit down and delete from the phone. So it just keeps accumulating. But I back up to Dropbox and Google.

  • HarelDan HD (@HarelDan) reported

    @danc00ks0n @GeoPackage1 @Dropbox @shapefiIe I've purchased Dropbox pro because Google Drive did the same conflicting versions thing to .shps and other GIS formats, DB never had this issue. I wonder how GD handles GPKG then.

  • HarelDan HD (@HarelDan) reported

    Uh-oh! @GeoPackage1 do not sync well between computers via @Dropbox. Never had this problem with @shapefiIe. I guess pausing sync while editing is the last resort.

  • vinians XCreator (@vinians) reported

    @KenneyNL So sorry my friend, I used some of your assets and they are really great! To avoid this type of issue, I use some cloud services like @dropbox or @sync they keep my data safe.

  • MohamedSharif Sharif (@MohamedSharif) reported

    It takes the piece of mind out of having to use @Dropbox! I thought I would get used to it but, I didn't. Hope they will either fix it or have the options for us to use the "classic legends and icons" option at least in the desktop version!

  • DrRixo Ricky black (@DrRixo) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yes they can confirm as my subscription shows as active which it wouldn’t do if it wasn’t successful if I go into the app to subscribe an error pops up saying I am already subscribed

  • DrRixo Ricky black (@DrRixo) reported

    @DropboxSupport Apple says to contact you and since the account is with you I want to know how to fix this

  • Captain_Reg Richard Bailey (@Captain_Reg) reported

    @Pearfalse I can’t imagine how anyone could look at either the Slack or Dropbox logo and think ‘well there is our problem!’. I find airlines are also particularly bad at this and pour millions into pointless rebrands

  • totalnerd_es Elliot Smith (@totalnerd_es) reported

    @SlackHQ Wow, this is horrible. What is it with companies changing their logo to things that are terrible. @netflix did the terrible ribbon thing. @Dropbox did the disgusting colour change thing. If this is the way design is going I hope I go blind soon.

  • TheLucasBest GT (@TheLucasBest) reported

    @DropboxSupport @Dropbox ...having clicked “continue...” I can then click the download link only to get the error about needing to verify my e-mail. Which I already have. After half a dozen attempts download might start. 2/

  • Kevin_Mercer_UX Kevin Mercer (@Kevin_Mercer_UX) reported

    @Dropbox Hey dropbox you've just broken my screenshot App. No I don't want you to save screenshots to dropbox. Okay we will just disable whatever solution you already had installed doing that good job for you! 😡

  • DropboxSupport Dropbox Support (@DropboxSupport) reported

    @mselamnia @Dropbox @GoogleFR Hey Adam, Google sign-in makes it easier for users to access their account by eliminating the need to remember a Dropbox-specific password (along with other benefits). You're not obliged to use the Google-sign in feature, and can use the main Dropbox login page instead. 1/2

    @bezilon_ @Dropbox Hey there, Google sign-in makes it easier for users to access their account by eliminating the need to remember a Dropbox-specific password (along with other benefits). You're not obliged to use the Google-sign in feature, and can use the main Dropbox login page instead. 1/2

  • Your1Fetish Your1Fetish 👣 (@Your1Fetish) reported

    @vic_hammer Minimal phone storage, minimal dropbox storage, minimal wifi connection, or dropbox account error... could be any of them

  • mattematica David || Matt (@mattematica) reported

    My biggest issue with the newest @elementary os is how the Dropbox indicator is broken. I know that this isn't the os' fault but it is a roadblock none the less. #elementarychallange @forbes @killyourfm

  • _danieljwilson_ Daniel J Wilson (@_danieljwilson_) reported

    @pCloudapp 3 days with broken pCloud. I'm a fan but Dropbox never does this. Support is getting a D-.

  • jensenje Jim Jensen (@jensenje) reported

    @DropboxSupport I just chatted with support and looks like they are already escalating this issue to someone on your advanced team. Ticket #8771320

  • helresa Theresa Davis 🧜‍♀️ (@helresa) reported

    @mariaAsmith @Gav_The_Bantam @ScrivenerApp @AeonTimeline I have the app on my IPAD and it's useful for jotting down a few 100 words or so if you don't want to take the Mac around, and if you use Dropbox it will keep the 2 in sync #writingchat

  • bestkid_ کامران (@bestkid_) reported

    @DropboxSupport I have Problem to log through android phone and login through browser is okay

  • marrob77 mark roberts (@marrob77) reported

    @DropboxSupport Thanks re-installing dbx seems to have cured the problem

  • DropboxSupport Dropbox Support (@DropboxSupport) reported

    @mdharrington111 Thx for the screenshot, Mike! Since the website & desktop app aren't able to load / run, it would mean that the reason you're experiencing this issue is because the network you're connected to has blocked Dropbox domains, preventing you from being able to access the platform. 1/2

  • James_Crabtree James_Crabtree (@James_Crabtree) reported

    @iMore I shot some photos "on assignments" past two years, and I gave up on what you are describing. iPhoto/Photos and sharing is just plain too slow and unreliable. Dropbox or better yet any old Chromebook + Google Photos works; added bonus HDR shots are processed automagically.

  • ThomasHatfield Thomas Hatfield (@ThomasHatfield) reported

    I found out yesterday that in an effort to fix my computer a month ago. I accidentally deleted all the files for the 1st song I’d written & record in over 6years. Thankfully the wonderful people at @Dropbox were able to recover it past the 30days. It was a tense few hours!Thanks!

  • marrob77 mark roberts (@marrob77) reported

    @DropboxSupport I'm on Windows 10 with desktop DBX app, The Web camera uploads content is fine. It won't propagate down to the PC even though I've set 'preferences' to include it.

  • nicholasallo Nicholas Allo (@nicholasallo) reported

    @DropboxSupport I've not been able to share files from my dropbox account for a while now. I just tried viewing a file using an old generated link and it is still not working. I am also unable to generate new links from my account, for new or old files

  • martinuwaltz Martin U Waltz (@martinuwaltz) reported

    @spems LOL, Apple has become a terrible company quite a while ago. I moved to Android long time ago. My mobile images find their way into the lightroom library on my computer without me having to do anything. BTW Dropbox is simply the best cloud service out there.

  • Bobcatracing Bobcat Motorsports (@Bobcatracing) reported

    The last bit of CAD modeling will likely be finished by the beginning of next month. And unless the dropbox facility that hosts our server doesn't spontaneously combust, we should be on schedule.

  • Eduardo_sxt Eduardo Zúñiga (@Eduardo_sxt) reported

    @albxn @GoodNotesApp Ok. I tried a few hours to calm down but WTF!!! I don’t like it!! Scrolling down is bullshit!! OneNote have not 3, not 4 but as many presets pens as you want! And I use automated dropbox backup for pdfs!! Thats the way I can see my notes in PC!! 😡

  • mygeekdaddy Jason Verly (@mygeekdaddy) reported

    I’m getting frustrated by the isolation apps have to their own folders in iOS. If I create a Markdown file in @draftsapp or Shortcuts, I want to be able to push it to a folder of my choosing. Back to @Dropbox. PS: I know this isn’t an issue with @draftsapp, it’s an iOS problem.

  • stacylwhitman Stacy Whitman (@stacylwhitman) reported

    @DropboxSupport I'm already doing that. Then my freelancers get told their account is full because they're not paying for the terabyte even though we are. Your answer pretty much just confirms the problem I laid out.
