  • jivinginjozi jiving-in-jozi (@jivinginjozi) reported

    @CharlesMeyers Don't use Dropbox, whatever you do. I have been using it for years, now can't sign in, they won't send me a code via text, like they usually do, I have ALL my data stored there and they can't solve it. @DropboxSupport @Dropbox

  • ZiltoidBB Ziltoid (@ZiltoidBB) reported

    @FlackoWeasel If you use google drive, dropbox etc. If it's on there its there forever ( unless you forget you login info lol) also your good Flacko.

  • benmartin88 Ben Martin (@benmartin88) reported

    @VAGentMike Hell Timmy hill hasjust got a $100 wheel & pedals but I hear the subscription is pricey If the Papyrus server was still working I would dropbox you the files needed to play my mod of NASCAR Racing Season 2003 to play but that server has been dead for a long time.

  • AuroraPenguin Aurora (@AuroraPenguin) reported

    @BearHybrid Could be a temporary problem or a problem on Dropbox's end, can't tell without looking at the application logs so support is your best bet

  • Gabrielxmzaz Jym (@Gabrielxmzaz) reported

    @DropboxSupport It's not very important, but it was a folder that I still wanted to have, if I can't recover without problems, I don't want to take up time. And the support is very good congratulations

  • CppWard Karen Ward, CPP (@CppWard) reported

    @Dropbox I need assistance getting into my account to update my email address. The one on file is no longer valid (compromised) and when I try to sign in I get a request to update my password. Please assist me.

  • alfageeek α geek (@alfageeek) reported

    @morgmorgmorg I'd be shocked to find a server that doesn't have a 2FA option. Dropbox, twitter, and google certainly do.

  • vaness_rb vanessa (@vaness_rb) reported

    @moskov @parkerhendo @Dropbox @SlackHQ @essentials error 4xx

  • kb3yua Brandon Lipani (@kb3yua) reported

    @meehamm Make a free dropbox account you can upload videos from your phone and then login to the web version on windows and download them

  • HenkPoley Henk Poley (@HenkPoley) reported

    @xeenon @lapcatsoftware No on the overlapping or touching Dock thing. Afaik I now only have one macOS internal app with some slightly gibberish name in the Accessibility list. Used to have Dropbox but removed it, to try to fix this bug. But let me get back to you when I'm near my MacBook.

  • cattsmall Catt Small (@cattsmall) reported

    @DropboxSupport Hi! I'm trying to *caption* an image in a table. The issue is not adding an image, but adding a caption to the image in the table.

  • MrBobDobolina Your Friendly Neighborhood Philip (@MrBobDobolina) reported

    ...someone sent me their dropbox login information so I could get a file from their dropbox account...

  • Spatial_Punk Spatial_Punk (@Spatial_Punk) reported

    @Don_Meltz One drive has eaten more of my work than my dog did when I was a child. I don’t have those same issues with Dropbox, shared drives, Box, or GDrive. Just one drive

  • tesspieceface big tess super doctor (@tesspieceface) reported

    10. dropbox or wait until morning tbh im usually not busy selling shit after closing time so this generally isnt an issue. if i find somethin like a scorp that id rather sell for full price ill wait but most of it i will just dropbox. i dont have time to carry all this Shit

  • mrschimpf Nathan Schimpf (@mrschimpf) reported

    @BambuMedia @lazygamereviews I assume the actual Dropbox got filled then and then they stupidly thought someone would stop by in the morning and empty it. Usually if a box gets filled you can tell since the door just won't even open since it can't come down being atop a pile of materials.

  • jivinginjozi jiving-in-jozi (@jivinginjozi) reported

    @RealJamesWoods Jamesi!! I need your help, PLEASE. Dropbox are messing me around very badly, I can't access my data, I uploaded EVERYTHING there and now can't sign in. Please help!

  • vishishsaini vishish saini (@vishishsaini) reported

    I have an issue of unauthorised transaction with Dropbox. While i submit the sign up form an unauthorised transaction occurred of amount 9070.72 rs from my account without asking my security pin. I want my money back @HDFC_Bank @HDFCBank_Cares

  • lilirishtravels Caitriona McBride (@lilirishtravels) reported

    @DropboxSupport Of course it started loading when I went to screenshot/video it. I assure it wasn't before, but when I started resolving comments, it became faster. Still a bit slow and glitchy though.

  • andyogenesis Andrew Benest (@andyogenesis) reported

    @SonOfCircinn I thought this- and stopped syncing Dropbox and one drive etc. That sort of helped but not resolve issue. Like I’m working happily now with everything on- phone, iPad, sonos and tv all on too

  • timschmoyer Tim Schmoyer (@timschmoyer) reported

    Got an SSD coming in the mail tomorrow to upgrade my old iMac. Wanna see if I can squeeze a few more years out it. Problem is, I currently have a full 3TB drive and the new one is 2TB. @Dropbox’s Smart Sync feature made it so easy to move junk off my HDD and into the cloud.

  • jthomerson Jeremy Thomerson (@jthomerson) reported

    @QuinnyPig @Dropbox Between this and their ever-increasing prices for services I will *never* care about, I switched to Drive last month. All I want is to sync a folder, and Drive does that almost as nicely as Dropbox. And Drive let's me share my space with family and solves my Gmail space problem.

  • merrillwhatley Merrill Whatley (@merrillwhatley) reported

    @Chris_Hamby @sarahdigitally @JimNaught @franklogue @AMcKellar17 @hpc3 @rebeccacanticle @CortneyHD That ain't true, but: agree with the dropbox "file request" option. Dropbox makes it easy w/ that feature, person sending file doesn't have to have an account or to have even heard of DB. People I've seen have issues try to send from iOS, it's weird with file folders and such.

  • databu Bastian Blankenburg (@databu) reported from Nairobi, Nairobi

    @Grady_Booch He was quite wrong though - synchronisation and getting your stuff in the cloud was a problem, otherwise the success of DropBox and other cloud drives and eg Google Docs doesn’t make sense.

  • pamelablonde666 𝙋𝙖𝙢𝙚𝙡𝙖 𝘽𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙚 (@pamelablonde666) reported

    Hello! I never usually do this but several things I use to make content have broken today (I am v unlucky) so pls slide in my dm’s regarding customs and if u want to buy literally all my porn I will sell u a Dropbox of it for £120

  • QuinnyPig Corey Quinn (@QuinnyPig) reported

    Dropbox on macOS: "It's *MY* CPU now. Oh, and if you have a lot of files don't sync everything, just a small subset or the system bogs down."

  • KTamas VSCode girl 🌷 (@KTamas) reported

    dropbox is so ******* terrible so often, and yet it's the least bad option

  • QuinnyPig Corey Quinn (@QuinnyPig) reported

    @DropboxSupport It was solved by a restart, but this problem has been recurring across many machines for years. "The latest version of our desktop app--" No! Bad Dropbox! A folder. That syncs everywhere. That's what I want, that's what I pay for. Somehow you've lost sight of that.

  • alexwlchan Alex Chan (@alexwlchan) reported

    @QuinnyPig The problem is that Dropbox built their own data centres and databases, rather than using something well-tested and reliable like Route 53.

  • stevelord His Dork Materials (@stevelord) reported

    @QuinnyPig @Dropbox I'm not saying you wouldn't have any problems if you used a 30 year old Amiga and the third-party cloud-handler tool for Dropbox, but you wouldn't have your current problem if you did.

  • QuinnyPig Corey Quinn (@QuinnyPig) reported

    Sit down at my computer today and @dropbox is steady-state chewing 150% CPU of an otherwise idle computer and has been all night. You sync a folder. That's all I want you to ever do. This is ridiculous.

  • conlon_chris Chris Conlon (@conlon_chris) reported

    @PinkseJoris The last time I had to burn everything down and start over was a Dropbox vs Github fight. I've already learned that lesson.

  • PinkseJoris Joris Pinkse (@PinkseJoris) reported

    @conlon_chris If you're working in dropbox then you can fix that.

  • ArchaeoAshleigh Dr Ashleigh Wiseman (@ArchaeoAshleigh) reported

    @AlbinaIcelander @AcademicChatter @JohnRHutchinson wetransfer is max 2GB so would probably take too long to get everything sent over Dropbox is having issues on my colleague's side so is a failure unfortunately :'(

  • pollyp1 Leslie Vosshall PhD (@pollyp1) reported

    @DropboxSupport Yes thank you - I figured this trick out after some trial and error. But the default view is still the one that is in my opinion very difficult to navigate (it cuts off text of long folder names so is useless to me)

  • sluttycanadians hornycouple 💕👄🇨🇦 (@sluttycanadians) reported

    OFFER because snap is down right now to make sales I’ll offer it to you all💕 If anyone wants dropbox for 25$ DM me! It’s normally 40 so take advantage #nsfwtwitter

  • ThroatWarsXXX The Rise Of Corona (@ThroatWarsXXX) reported

    I believe it's best for me to not renew my Dropbox Plus subscription and instead, put all of my personal vids on XVideos until I reach their ridiculous payout amount, and then shut that platform down, too.

  • cheapcardsales Cheap Cards © (@cheapcardsales) reported

    @brothertona @ValleyOfCards I use the blue Dropbox 90% of the time, unless it’s something of really high value. Only had an issue once or twice out of thousands of packages.

  • stugamble Stu Gamble (@stugamble) reported

    @UpstartThunder Still, I’ve got 256gb and I’ve never had a storage issue. Just means saving the images to Dropbox etc regularly, which isn’t a bad habit to get into. The new iPad is lovely though...

  • thebookishgurl georgia 📚 (@thebookishgurl) reported

    @DropboxSupport hi I've just signed up for an account on my laptop and it won't let me log in from my phone to the same account it keeps saying error

  • Orineu Ori 🇺🇲🏳️‍🌈 hmu if you need (@Orineu) reported

    TIL that the nooklings mark down their payment to you when you use the external dropbox. Like, by a lot.

  • LizardBirds LizardBirds Wash Their Hands (@LizardBirds) reported

    grr windows explorer keeps crashing whenever i select a file in dropbox like calm down

  • Cvo7771 Cvo777 (@Cvo7771) reported

    @_mehdigeek Also the store dropbox not telling you how much an item/items costed before the 20% shipping tax. It’s truly annoying to try to do percentage math while i’m just trying to quickly nail down the prices of expensive items.

  • ToozdaeNites Toozdae Nites#7690 (@ToozdaeNites) reported

    For proof, check out @Fowlgon91 ‘s PSA tweet, there is a linked dropbox with all of the evidence of the dude harassing minors on discord. Stay safe folks, and please, do not chase the guy down. Just simply block him and report any dangerous activity from him.

  • AgentZeroNine 😷 (@AgentZeroNine) reported

    @luccpd Hmmm. Not working. Going to send you a Dropbox link

  • sonicxperiences Superficial (@sonicxperiences) reported

    @alliex @Dropbox Send me your login and password and I can fix it for you :)))))

  • forsatellites National Gold Music Publishing (@forsatellites) reported

    @totalvibration Yes - I’ve been having issues downloading WAV files from Dropbox for a few weeks now

  • waxpancake Andy Baio (@waxpancake) reported

    @unicorn It only passed in Oregon and Washington last year. I rarely have stamps handy, so always drop my ballot off at a dropbox down the street from my house.

  • Megacurve Adrian Bruce (@Megacurve) reported

    Illustrations I did used to be too big for the email inbox of many customers. I put them on my own server for them to download, but some customers preferred Dropbox as easier for them. I didn't delete their files from there. Sometimes they needed 'em again

  • Hi_IQ_Trump Erudite Donald (@Hi_IQ_Trump) reported

    @Dean_Hodgkins @Dropbox The problem I see is that it was supposed to be easy to share over Bluetooth or any of a number of ways which keep being taken off the table. Then they say ”oh, here is a tool that forces you to give up all your contacts and makes everything a major hassle, thanks for buying!"

  • designs2print Designs2print (@designs2print) reported

    @DropboxSupport Is anyone available to help an issue i am having. Unable to find any contact details on the website!

  • LeakedStr8Guys Strongman, Queen of the Ball (@LeakedStr8Guys) reported

    If you got the dropbox link from me, the link is dead. I think I set a new record for how fast an account can be shut down

  • ldkgebot George Bot (@ldkgebot) reported

    Is Dropbox down or is it just me or OS X #life

  • gersandelf Gersande La Flèche (@gersandelf) reported

    As far as I can tell, this error happened when I moved a ton of materials onto Dropbox last September before sending my laptop into the Apple Store for big repairs. My last Time Machine backup is from October, and Dropbox doesn’t have the files anymore either, it’s been too long.

  • FbioPer93756134 Fábio Pereira (@FbioPer93756134) reported

    @N_Waters89 @DropboxSupport I have a problem too! Let’s keep our eyes on them! We need to find a solution for our problems! I am reaaally frustrated. Let’s come here again and again! I have had an issue with them for 40 days. I get billed, but they don’t seem to care about the issue.

  • FbioPer93756134 Fábio Pereira (@FbioPer93756134) reported

    @jivinginjozi @DropboxSupport Same problem! Let’s keep our eyes on them! We need to find a solution for our problems! I am reaaally frustrated.

    @jivinginjozi @DropboxSupport Same problem! Let’s keep our eyes on them! We need to find a solution for our problems! I am reaaally frustrated.

  • SaroMasbo Saro Masbanajian (@SaroMasbo) reported

    As an addendum to this, the person requesting an FTP login CAN’T EVEN USE DROPBOX!!! 🤣

  • RichMcGowanMD @RichMcGowanMD (@RichMcGowanMD) reported

    Anyone out there who is voting, please document the problems at polls, the acts of #VoterSuppression. For anyone who cannot goto the polls who has their absentee ballot please drop it off at a Dropbox or make sure it is in the morning mail.

  • megancox megan (@megancox) reported

    I logged into my Dropbox for something totally unrelated and found a folder from 2017 with various memes, gifs, and reaction images. I predict a slow day at work. Leave me a number between 1 - 368 and I will respond with the corresponding image because why the heck not. ✨

  • heybove Chris Bové (@heybove) reported

    Every time I Google Dropbox and type D-r-o-p, I get sidetracked down a Dropkick Murphys rabbit hole.
