    @iEmulators It has a problem with syncing dropbox that app will shutdown by itself

    @overleaf I use the Dropbox backup but it looks like I still lost 30 minutes of writing due to this outage. Not cool...

  • overleaf
    Overleaf (@overleaf) reported

    @drsrinathsridha The outage yesterday wasn't due to load, but using GitHub or Dropbox for backups is a good plan. We're also bringing the v1 *** bridge to Overleaf v2, which will provide another simple way to take a local backup.

    @teppo_v @LucasDousse @Nextclouders @Dropbox @Tresorit @ProtonMail Luckily it isn't super complicated: e2e is supposed to protect you from the server. If you don't trust the server, you can't trust the code it sends your browser to handle the encryption (for example it might sent your key to a evil server). So no e2e in a browser, period...

    @yellowkazoo I can find a way to dropbox it if you think you can fix it :-)

    @DropboxSupport - I've gotten four errors trying to upgrade my account but the payment has gone through each time. I can see it posted on my bank's website.

    @DropboxSupport Just to clarify "users can only upload files as they are already named" so why then does it add the name in front of the file. I.e the screenshot attached renamed the file with my first and last. When you have a dataset pointing to the original name this causes major issues

    Muddy the waters when the issue is clear by suggesting a line where #journailsts solicit not given stolen material. An effort to paint #Assange persecution as something different from every check marked bio that has secure contact info for tips & every corp news org anon Dropbox.

    The day Dropbox shuts down will be the day I die because I have 143.31 GB worth of shit stored in there.

    The @Dropbox Paper login flow is getting ever more complicated. It's like the opposite of an escape room - here's all these hoops to jump through, let's see if you can get in.

  • Sadowick

    @WeAreFocusrite I think at the time it was a browser or cookie issue on my end. A friend of mine downloaded the one I needed and sent it to me via dropbox.

    @imPatrickT @Dropbox @googledrive Thanks so much man. Really had the same problems

  • erikdrr
    Erik Derr (@erikdrr) reported

    Note on the fix. The issue was a vuln. Dropbox SDK from 2014. They fixed it by updating to one of the first patched ver. from 2015. I appreciate the (reasonably) fast fix, but this is in line with our study results showing that libs are rarely up2date (often not even close) 3/3

    @DropboxSupport I've tried with Firefox, Chrome, Vivaldi, Maxthon, Netscape, Internet Explorer but the forum is still read-only. I think that browser preferences aren't an issue here.

    Radio Azureus (@Radio_Azureus) reported

    @LucasDousse @Dropbox @Nextclouders You will also have access to consistent bugfixing schedules, with rapid rates of fix on critical ones. You also have a choice of great hardware from @iXsystems or chose to build your own #NAS server based on @freenas or any other #FOSS solution #Linux #FreeBSD #opensource #GPL

    So, by removing *all* instances of Dropbox integrations from Preferences > Extensions , I cut down all the repeated links down to a single one .... on the other hand, I removed **all** ticks related to Dropbox for Finder Integrations and it's still there ....................

    @o_guest @RemiGau @msvanarmy @djnavarro I was using *** with dropbox and onedrive on Win10 for a while. It was a bugfest. Issue is that file syncing is not atomic. Unlucky timing will break your repo, and this is bound to happen sooner or later.

    @djnavarro I’ve never had an issue with Dropbox and *** ... now I am scared I will ! 😱

  • anarkaytie
    WaahineAnarkia (@anarkaytie) reported

    @thomasbeagle This is why I’ve been very cautious about Dropbox et al, since cloud storage first showed up. I want my backup server in-country, tyvm. Actrix was my first pick for isp, for that reason alone. Not paying Apple for cloud, either.

    @EmrichOffice @Box @Dropbox Yep! Some fonts don’t upload to the Box web site when dragging and dropping from PC to browser window. No error messages, just no fonts load when you try to open the files

  • ClockworkMagus
    Patrick Martin (@ClockworkMagus) reported

    @Dropbox Having consistent problems with all dropbox apps the last couple days. This is affecting everyone at my work across multiple accounts. The Mac OSX app, iOS app, and some in-app integrations within iOS won't connect. Website seems to work fine

    Not sure if others had an issue recently w/ adding #Dropbox to #MicrosoftTeams - had done before & go figure it fails during onsite training last week - multiple accts/pc's. Moved on to other things - no time to look into - but appears to be okay now! 🤔 #Office365 #MurphysLaw

    @djnavarro yeah my Dropbox does sync a lot. Haven't had any issues with corruption. Well, except one time when I was syncing between two machines and committed to the same repo on each one within seconds. But I was clearly asking for trouble!

    @DjNature We're sorry for any difficulties this may have caused. Our engineering team has informed us that performance should get back to normal shortly as the issue has been resolved. Feel free to let us know how things go once you try accessing the Dropbox website again. Thanks! 🙏

    Every time a company based in SF annoys me or goes down, I have this ridiculous urge to march to their office & bang angrily on their door. Today, it’s dropbox.

    @RothParsons Sync to iCloud, but I regularly back up my manuscripts to Dropbox. My server overseas runs a Dropbox daemon too, and it has its own off-site daily/weekly/monthly rolling backups. So my data is on: iPad, iPhone, iCloud, Dropbox, my server, and multiple other backups.

    @DropboxSupport Hello, I needed more space in my DropBox account so I've signed up for the free 30 day upgrade to business account trial and now I've been given a new Dropbox folder rather than extending the one I had and I'm having terrible trouble accessing all my DropBox documents. Arghh ...

    @kierstenwhite I'm not usually a dramatic ***** but if I hadn't also had books to return that I was still able to drop off in the dropbox, I would have probably laid down right there on the sidewalk
